JD’s Teach the Children
A local billiards business has joined in our efforts to help needy Valley children. JD’s Billiard located at 105 E. Expressway 83 in Pharr is now helping Channel Five Teach the Children. JD’s Billiard will be donating 100 dollars for every pool table sold to the Teach the Children Foundation. This will help needy Valley children with clothes and school supplies as they head to the classroom next month. JD’s will continue helping the children throughout the months of July and August.
Cinemark and Teach the Children
The new 16 Screen Cinemark Cinema in Brownsville and Channel Five are giving away free movie passes in exchange for five dollars worth of unused school supplies. It’s all part of our Teach the Children project where we give school supplies to needy Valley kids. There will be a booth in front of the ticket counters where you can drop off your supplies from six to eight. Your free movie pass does not have to be used today.
