In lieu of a Farmers Market we will be teaming up with Root2RISE and offering community shares!  
Please see the attached flyer!
Aiken Coat Drive Kick Off at Fall Festival!
This is a great chance to give back to our community! The weather is finally turning cooler, and we are hopeful you will help us by sorting through your closets for winter items you can donate to families in need. We are looking for new or gently used scarves, hats, snow pants, coats, mittens, etc. The coat drive will kick off at the fall festival on Saturday, October 16th from 11am-2pm and run for two weeks through Friday, October 19th. We will have a box at the festival and then outside the main office where students can drop off items. The coat drive will benefit The Bridge Family Center in West Hartford. Thank you in advance!
