Arkansas Gives! - April 7

On Thursday, April 7, we will again participate in Arkansas Gives!, a one-day, statewide day of giving for non-profits in Arkansas. All monies raised during this day will go to our scholarship fund. The amount available for families is dependent upon the amount available in our fund. More information will be forthcoming as the date approaches, but please consider making a gift and encouraging friends/families to do the same.
