On Saturday, May 6th, Texarkana’s non-profit Just Love and Kindness.org will host a Community Day from 11 am to 3 pm at the Four States Fairgrounds. Community Unity Day is a day dedicated to providing a fun, safe environment for students in 9th-12th grade to come together as a community and meet new friends while having a fun day.
Just Love & Kindness aims to promote the development of young people, veterans, and the forgotten and underserved members of our society in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social, and spiritual potential as individuals and as responsible citizens as members of the community.
Social Conscience is about being aware of problems that affect other people, especially our youth (also, veterans and underserved) communities, and then striving to do something about those problems.
