Local Outreach


Everyone is invited to attend the community-wide back-to-school event, “Party in the Park”, taking place on Sunday, August 26th at Mills River Park from 4:30-6:30pm.

If you can help with purchasing school supplies, please bring them to our promo table in the cafe by Tuesday, August 21st. If you would like to volunteer for the event, please contact Amanda McLamb, .

The supplies needed are: glues sticks, safety scissors, pencils, crayons (8, 16, or 24 pack), colored pencils (12, 24, or 36 packs), pencil-top erasers, 1-subject bound notebooks, composition notebooks, wide-ruled paper.
