We are excited about our second annual Ticket to Service event – A Heart to Serve,” stated Elizabeth Ann Brown, Tennessee Promise Success Coach. “We have planned a fun, interactive event for the students with a 1950’s sock hop theme. Representatives from various service agencies will be on hand to familiarize the students with their operations and to provide them with volunteer opportunities. We will also be hosting the Medic Blood Mobile and will also have a voter registration table set up. It is our goal to better acquaint the students with their community and to give them the opportunity to give back. The public is also invited to come donate blood from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.”
