I know from experience that there is an extreme amount of children at Tanner Williams and Wilmer school that would use this. Could you please help these children out during the summer. I know that their parents would appreciate it. Thanks so much!

I agree that there is a great need in Semmes, Wilmer, and the Eight-mile area.  Is there a possibility of addressing this need this summer or will it wait until next summer?
