    AT&T is donating hundreds of binders for our back to school supply drive. I need a few volunteers in the Buckhead area to pick them up. If you are live or work in that area and are available for this pick up, please let me know.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
