Vision & Hearing Screen Volunteers Needed

Volunteers are needed for the upcoming vision and hearing screenings at the ECC! The kindergarten and preschool screenings will take place on September 27th, 28th and 29th.  We need help all the way from eye doctors and hearing screeners to volunteers to help students migrate to and from the classroom. The day stars at 8a and finishes at 2p. As always, we appreciate our awesome volunteers!

Hearts for Harvey

In addition to the supply collection, Falls Lenox has adopted Lovett Elementary in Houston (through the Principals with Principles group) and will sell paper hearts for a $1 donation to line the front lobby showing love and support for those affected by the hurricane. Donations will be collected from 7:45-8:10am Wednesday, September 6th – Friday, September 15th.  Our Falls Lenox family hopes to send Wal-mart gift cards using the money raised.

How you can help: we need a volunteer to collect the money and hand out the “hearts” from 7:45a-8:15a each of the eight days. Please sign up with the link below if you’re able! Thank you for your support!
