Little Red Schoolhouse Fundraiser Barbecue and Raffle: May 19

We estimate that the Little Red Schoolhouse Project will serve over 3,000 students in August 2016. And that means a lot of supplies are needed! This entirely volunteer-run group needs your help to give supplies to these kids in need. Fortunately, if you like to eat, there's an easy way to make a difference in the life of a child: Come to the fundraiser barbecue May 19!
