MLK Day of Service – School Supply Collection – Help Our Local Schools

6300 School Supply Collection

Thank Everyone That Supported Our First Annual MLK Day of Service Project


Due to the shortfalls from the School District, local schools can always use more supplies. As such, the 6300 Germantown Ave Business Alliance collected school supplies to donate to two of our neighborhood schools:  Lingelbach Elementary School (K-8) and Roosevelt Elementary school (K-8).

School Supply Give Away Coming Soon

August 17th, Our Community School Supply Give Away turned out great! 140 Backpacks stuffed with goodies to the brim was given away.  As we grow this event each year – we hope to serve the community and their needs.

Those that came to the Concord School House & Upper Burial Ground were not only grateful to receive the backpacks, they also got a quick tour of the one-room Concord School House built in the 1800s.

We also had a visit from Councilwoman Cindy Bass.
