60 Barrels in 60 Days!
While school is out for the summer, the next 60 days are critical at CSL!  Our staff is hard at work raising support to ensure 2,500 students will have the necessary tools to be successful in the classroom in the Fall.  Filling backpacks with school supplies, and stocking shelves with brand new pairs of shoes is top of mind at seven CSL locations. 

Today, CSL is kicking off a 60 Days of Summer Campaign to raise support for our upcoming Back to School Fairs!  In the next 60 days, we hope to place 60 barrels at businesses, churches, and other locations across the metro to collect school supplies, backpacks, and tennis shoe donations for this year's Back to School Fairs. We currently are 1/3 of the way towards our goal!
