Remember that wonderful feeling you got in elementary school when you reached a new level of reading or mastered a new skill? We want to be sure that the children in the Allendale-Fairfax Schools get that same warm feeling and maybe a little prize! The Allendale-Fairfax Education Foundation is increasing its tutoring effort and we are going to help!
How you ask? Simple- it is all about the TIPS! Tips received during each of the 4 Tuesdays when a different food truck arrives on Pickens St and sells delicious food (between 12 and 2) will be donated to help the Foundation buy incentives for the kids.
Venezuelan arepas, tacos, burgers and salads- each week a different truck with a different cuisine. Make plans to ignore that lunch bag on Tuesdays in September!
Have noticed the donation jars that suddenly appeared in the library, cafe, bookstore, and Pro Bono office?
No, well it is time to start looking for them and then it is time to step up and start dropping in those pesky pennies, nickels and dimes! Time to free up your pockets! Empty them into the jars and help support the academic programs in one of SC’s poorest school districts- Allendale-Fairfax.
