We have the privilege of being able to help others pour into the lives of young people through PENCIL Foundation. PENCIL is linking community resources to Metro Nashville Public Schools to help students achieve academic success and prepare for life. Business are teaching their trade to students, volunteers are tutoring and helping students to read at grade level, and volunteers are donating supplies that teachers need in their classroom.

On Saturday, April 1st we will be going to the LP PENCIL Box to donate much needed supplies, help teachers pick out what they need for their classroom and help restock and consolidate shelves. We will be arriving at 9:00am and working until 12:00pm. You can sign up to serve with us here: www.volunteersignup.org/F8CCB 

We are doing a supply drive to donate to the PENCIL Box. They are currently in need of health supplies. We are collecting tissue boxes, hand sanitizer, paper towels, sanitizing wipes and Ziplock Bags. All of these items will be brought to them on our service day on April 1st. Please email us at info@localinitiative.org if you have any supply donations that we can pick up.

We're also bringing a group to help with the Moosic City DairyPure Dash on Saturday, April 15 from 5:30am-12:00pm (at the latest). This is a 5k, 10k and 15k race benefitting PENCIL Foundation. We will be there to help as a group with whatever they need. It will be a fun opportunity for the whole family.
