Alexandria has made it easy to support your favorite charities on National Day of Giving. Please click on the link above to support The New Teen Center Project here at the Rec Center. The goal of the new teen center is providing Teens a safe, fun place while helping them find their vision and the skills to make it all happen. You can donate now through April 5th. We need to raise another $3000 by June to keep our $25000 city grant. You are making a difference. Many Thanks!
