ENAS -382 Purple Totes during Purple Week
ENAS-382 came together again to help out the Salvation Army Learning Center of Wilson County by having a Purple Tote Drive that kicked off during Purple Week. Our station volunteered with the Salvation Army Learning Center back in February and the director shared with the group some of the needs they had to keep the program running smoothly.
The Salvation Army Learning Center of Wilson County is a free after school program for children grades K-6. The majority of the children they serve come from Wilson County’s largest Federal Housing projects. Their program offers a safe place for the children to come to after school as many get off schools buses to find locked homes. The Salvation Army provides the children with an after school meal, an assembly that includes music, educational classes, enrichments activities such as art, gymnastics, music lessons and sports.
A huge thank you goes out to everyone that participated and spread the word. We had a great collection of food items for Sgt. Tom Freeman to pick up today. He was overwhelmed with the support and couldn’t be more thankful for us continuing our relationship with them.
