Maintaining good grades in school is a challenge for students if they are struggling at home, couch surfing, living out of a car, or on the streets. In Georgetown, school counselors are able to provide low income kids with valuable resources to help in these types of situations: mentoring, tutoring, after school care, school supplies, and clothing. Here lies an opportunity for you to help out.
On September 21, 2013, you are invited to volunteer at the McKinney Ministry Center at Georgetown’s First Methodist Church from 9:00am – 5:00pm. The Salvation Army partners with The Georgetown Project, Kohl’s, and the Georgetown Independent School District to distribute free new tennis shoes to children in need.
