Douglass Alumni/Kohl's Project Successful

The first project with Kohl's Department Store employees was a success. Under the supervision of Ethel Ruth Russell the Kohl's employees cleaned up the front of St. Mark United Methodist Church and also did some work on their playground.

The alumni association chose St. Mark in appreciation for allowing us to have meetings at their church. After all of the paper work is in, the Douglass alumni association will receive $500.00 toward our scholarship fund. Kohl's donates this money to organizations that help young people. They get their employees to volunteer to do the work and we reap the rewards.

The Douglass alumni association would like to give a special thanks to Michelle Hankins for introducing this project to us.

Respectfully submitted,
Virginia Hankins
