Africa Drive at Heritage Day
The Community Outreach Committee is partnering with the US-Africa Children’s Fellowship to hold a collection drive in the schoolyard this Saturday during Heritage Day. We will be collecting children’s books, school supplies of all kinds, soccer balls and soccer equipment, sports uniforms, toys and games, sneakers and shoes, and bicycles to help support education for young people in Zimbabwe, Ghana, Nigeria, and South Africa. Come drop off your donations in the big yard and then enjoy Heritage Day! Please sign up on Konstella if you would like to help collect and sort donations.

Bring the whole family and invite your friends for a fun weekend wrap-up at Chipotle on 7th Avenue and 2nd Street in Park Slope.
