 Check out our "Back to School Shop" in the Learning Center! 
Thank you to all of our Club supporters and the town of Arlington. Your donations made our kids SO excited for back to school. We had over 40 members come and shop for their back to school supplies. Beginning with a back pack -- and filling it with binders, notebooks, pencils, calculators, folders, and even some lunch boxes. We even had 20 members shop before hand and we still have some supplies left to help out more kids!
 
We cannot thank you enough for your continued support. Thank you for making sure "Great Futures Start HERE"!
