As part of our Next Steps Vision process the congregation decided to help reduce illiteracy in Athens Clarke County. This decision led us to adopt  Barrow Elementary School. We began by hosting a Barrow Family BBQ last October. Since then, we have eight  volunteers who read each week with a child in the Barrow Buddy Program. During the month of February there are additional opportunities to participate in our partnership with Barrow Elementary, and all are welcome to take part.

Parent volunteers are currently working on matting the student artwork for display. Additional help may be needed to help with matting and hanging the art for display. If you are available to help with this or to help take the art down after the show, please contact parent Carla York to find out the specific times they are meeting.
