What we’ve been up to:
This past Sunday So What Else held a service learning project booth at the World of Montgomery Festival at Wheaton Mall. Kids were able to make arts and crafts to be donated to different organizations. Thanks to Panera we donated food, that otherwise would have been wasted, to hundreds of participants. Also thanks to Butlers Orchard for donating over 100 mini pumpkins for the event!
So What Else participated at the YMCA Fall Festival last Saturday in Bethesda MD.
We are currently running 18 after school programs this fall in Middle Schools, Elementary Schools and Community Centers around the Metropolitian Community. A tremendous thank you for all the supporters that attended our Gala and help to raise money that will fund our afterschool programs and our summer camps, all of our programs are free of charge to youth and families.
