Share the Love on Sunday, February 23rd
Our Third Annual Share the Love Event will be held on Sunday, February 23rd from 1-3pm in the Dining Commons. This is a great opportunity to have the kids work on something that directly affects kids (and kittys!) in our area. Come with the family to do some good and spread some joy.
This year our service projects include:
- putting Birthday and Celebration boxes together and making cards for kids in shelters at Doorways& Bridges to Independence,
- making toys & blankets for kittens at the Animal Welfare League of Arlington.
- setting up New Baby kits for new moms for the DC Diaper Bank. BONUS act of kindness: bring a box of diapers or a tube of diaper rash cream with you to donate!
- PLUS we'll be sharing the love with our own school by helping pick up litter around Discovery AND cleaning out the Lost & Found
Please help us make this event a success by volunteering an hour of your time to help supervise one of our four project stations. Sign up here!
Lost and Found
The Discovery Lost and Found collection (currently located outside the library near the yellow slide) will be donated to Clothesline for people in need on February 23rd during our Share the Love event. Stop by and claim your child's lost belongings before that date!
