BACK-TO-SCHOOL SUPPLIES NEEDED
FOR SEPTEMBER 14TH
We want to give school supplies to each kid who attends the September 14th clubs.
If you happen to have the following laying around (or want to
pick some up at back-to-school sales), these are the
specific items we are looking for:
Colorful 2-pocket folders
3-ring pencil pouches
Stores such as Office Depot, Staples, and Target are promoting
great back-to-school specials. If you're going to be there
anyway, why not pick up a folder or ten for the kids?
email@example.com or call us at (310) 479-7455 if you
have any supplies to donate. September is always a fun month,
and made much more so with the giveaways!
RUNNERS NEEDED FOR MARATHON,
1/2 MARATHON, OR 5 K!
Do you know any runners? Are you a

Angeles Marathon on Sunday,
We're looking for six more full marathon runners and six Charity Challenge runners (the last 13 miles of the course) to join us in one of the best marathons in the country.
