The city is very much in need of volunteers for the MLK Community Center’s 21st year of the K-6 “Go for Gold” Summer Enrichment and Recreational Program. They have no volunteers yet, but the program already began on Monday.

Every day the children have a light breakfast and hearty lunch. They participate in enrichment activities in various subjects, and arts and crafts projects. Every day there are organized sports activities such as kickball, basketball and volleyball. The kids play board games both for learning and fun, and go on field trips to go swimming, fishing, or visit a museum, for example.

Donations of arts and crafts supplies, workbooks, books, or snacks, and juices are also needed.

If you are interested in helping out, call LeRoy Stokes or Tanya Johnson at 337-238-3271, email Tanya.johnson@leesvillela.gov, or city hall at frontdesk@leesvillela.gov.
