To kick off the year, we will be having a backpack packing happy hour at Gordon Biersch at the Parole Town Center on August 12th at 5:30. We are going to purchase and pack supplies for 5 elementary students who we have been assigned. You can sign up to purchase items on the Sign Up Genius link below. You can either bring the items to the event, or if you are not able to join us, there will be a box to drop the items off in advance in the lobby of the State's Attorney's Office in the Circuit Court. If you would like to help by donating instead of purchasing items, you can Venmo Marot Williamson at @Marot-Williamson (0593). Any extra funds we collect beyond the items we have been assigned will be used to purchase additional school supplies. Appetizers will be provided, so please join us for a fun afternoon of packing and chatting with your fellow WBA members. If are coming to the happy hour, please RSVP to Marot at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can provide the restaurant with an accurate headcount. Please use sign up to purchase items using this link.
