8th grade members of the GW Middle School National Junior Honor Society are collecting gently-used childrens' books (pre-K to 8th grade) for the Dream Dog Foundation's "Alexandria Book Shelf", a program that puts free books in the hands of local school children.
See the link below for more info on the numerous ABS locations:
Donations may be delivered to 912 North Overlook Drive, Alexandria VA (feel free to leave on front porch) or you can call/text Chalin Smith at 703-447-9139 to arrange a pick-up.
So that we may get them into the various sites in time for the new school year, we need all donations by Friday, August 14th.
Thank you for your support.

Senior Services of Alexandria is pleased to announce a new program that we
have developed in partnership with Alexandria's Office of Communications.
The "Senior Academy" is a four-week course designed to provide Alexandria's
seniors with an opportunity to gain exposure to the City's various
government functions, learn about local organizations that provide services
and programs for our senior community, and help seniors get involved!
Classes will be held each from on , 16, 23
and 30. Attendees will "graduate" during the City Council
Meeting. I have attached a copy of the draft agenda and the marketing
postcard we are distributing to promote the event.
The topics included are:
* Getting to know your City and How you can Make a Difference!
* Community Resources
* City Services for Seniors
* Leisure, Cultural and Educational Opportunities.
Since space is limited to just 25 City residents aged 60+, and we would
appreciate your sharing this information with your contacts so they may sign
up before the deadline. The program is free and we will be
serving light refreshments each morning.
If you have any questions please contact me at
seniorservicesalex.org or 703-836-4414, ext. 111.
