Meet at Chapel Oval to carpool to Union Elementary School
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8th from 3:15 to 5:30 p.m. the Health and Wellness and Appalachian Experience Issue Teams of WE LEAD will be hosting an event at Union Elementary School. We will be playing games with the kids and handing out educational information. We hope to make this a lasting partnership with the schools in order to fight childhood obesity in children and give children information they can take home to educate their families.
We are anticipating around 57 children, so we will need volunteers! Please contact me if you are interested.
We will be carpooling from the Chapel Oval at 2:50 p.m. on Friday. We will have an agenda created for you then so you will know specifically what you are doing. Also, if you have class until 2:50, but would still like to go, let me know, and we will work with you on a ride.
Please let Amanda Davis (firstname.lastname@example.org) know by Thursday at noon whether or not you will be attending.

Ten Thousand Villages is an exceptional source for unique handmade gifts, jewelry, home decor, art and sculpture, textiles, serveware and personal accessories representing the diverse cultures of artisans in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. One of the world's largest fair trade organizations and a founding member of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO), the company strives to improve the livelihood of tens of thousands of disadvantaged artisans in 38 countries. Ten Thousand Villages accomplishes this by establishing a sustainable market for handmade products in North America, and building long term buying relationships in places where skilled artisan partners lack opportunities for stable income. Product sales help pay for food, education, healthcare and housing for artisans who would otherwise be unemployed or underemployed.
