Yesterday, students at Arrow Academy of Excellence in the Orange Mound community were thrilled to receive special gifts from the Youth United Way Leadership Program’s “Shoebox Christmas” initiative.
Teens in the Youth United Way program donated and wrapped the gifts for students earlier this month. Arrow Academy of Excellence is a K-3 learning environment which focuses heavily on the foundational skills of reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies.
