Teens for Tots make video plea for the Elaine Clark Center in Chamblee

A group of Chamblee Middle School students began a service learning project to help a local childcare center they thought did good work. Then they fell in love with the kids the center serves, 60 in all, some with special needs ranging from learning disabilities to cerebral palsy. Now they want the world to fall in love, too — enough, at least, to help a good cause.

Angered by the roof leaks, old pipes and cracked mortar The Elaine Clark Center fights daily, the students recorded a plea for the center on Peachtree Industrial Boulevard in Chamblee and its 40-year-strong history as a safe haven. Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Oprah Winfrey. Ellen DeGeneres. The students will send each a video with a personalized greeting to try to get the center some help. AJC Article

I want to commend these students as my family has had the pleasure of using the services at the Elaine Clark Center and I can tell you first hand that they do wonderful work.
