TANLA’S 8th Annual

TANLA’S 8th Annual

Caring Beyond the Classroom Back To School Fair

TANLA held our 8th Annual Caring Beyond the Classroom (CBTC) community event on Saturday, August 6th, at John Glenn High School. We were excited to be able to actually hold the event this year even if it looked a little different than usual. During the drive-thru event, we provided 1600 knapsacks filled with school supplies to students in our community. This year’s CBTC event was the highest attended yet. It was a huge success made possible by many volunteers, community partners, and sponsors!
