Atlanta, GA--  

The Office of Cultural Affairs is offering an opportunity for the youth of Atlanta to gain access to after-school cultural and educational enrichment classes.  The JD Sims Recreational Center has reopened under Mayor Kasim Reed in hopes of inspiring youth in the neighborhood and providing a place where they can study. 

This facility features a dance studio, computer lab, large multi-purpose room, arts and crafts room and kitchen.  These areas will be utilized with the help of the After-School All-Stars for tutoring and homework assistance.  In addition the Dance Canvas will be instructing the dance classes, there will be theater classes taught by Theater with True Colors and Character Building with United Brothers.  Our goal is to provide an opportunity for youth to participate in educational and cultural activates that contribute to their growth and achievement.

Project Overcoat, seeks to collect warm clothing for the Homeless at metro Krogers until Jan. 22nd

Atlanta, GA--  (submitted by United Way)

During the frigid winter months, imagine sleeping on the cold pavement. Imagine wearing only doubled-up T-shirts to work in 20-degree weather because that’s all you have to keep warm. Unfortunately, this is the reality for far too many metro Atlantans who are homeless or can’t afford a coat or blanket.

From Jan. 8-22, everyone is encouraged to drop off blankets or new or gently used coats of all sizes at any Kroger in the metro region.

WHAT:  Project Overcoat. All sizes needed, from children to adult sizes.                   

WHEN:  Jan. 8-22. Drop off at any Kroger store in metro Atlanta.
