Catalyst Network of Communities is partnering with the Teachers Association of Long Beach (TALB) to set up a Pop Up Long Beach Free Store at First Fridays Long Beach in Bixby Knolls this Friday, Sept. 5th from 6:30pm - 8:30pm. We'll also have our Long Beach Free School set up with info about our upcoming Don't Ditch Day. We'll be in the TALB parking lot at 4362 Atlantic Avenue, Long Beach, CA 90807.
Bring your donations of clothes, housewares, toys, and more (maximum 1 bag) to add to the Free Store inventory. Anyone who comes by is welcome to shop for FREE!
We're also asking anyone (parents or just the community at large) that if they'll buy an extra pack of pens or markers or notebooks while shopping and bring them to TALB on First Fridays, we'll set aside a special section of the Free Store for teachers to receive some school supplies for their students. Please help spread the word!
The Children's Theatre of Long Beach will also be performing excerpts from their show Velveteen Rabbit. Be sure to come by and watch them sing, dance, and act! Here's a pic from their summer production of Willy Wonka.
