Shoes for Dominican Republic
Dear TFA Families,

This year The First Academy Spring Break Family Mission Trip is going to the Dominican Republic! We are partnering with Mission Emanuel located on the western edge of Santo Domingo.

Currently, there is a great need for children’s shoes in the Dominican Republic and the Lord has put it on our hearts to help fulfill this need. Will you help us by donating gently used or new shoes to the children at the local elementary school run by Mission Emanuel?

The shoe drive will take place now through Wednesday, March 25. There is a large box in the lobby of The Classical School to place the donated shoes.

Thank you for help!

Bring in your Box Tops!!
First Hope is collecting Box Tops to purchase a touch screen computer and sensory equipment.
The Goal is $2000.00 = 20,000 Box Tops
