The kids in Ingram’s Karate Center’s afterschool program do more than kick and break boards. They also clean up trash, plant flowers and deliver community service to the Carrollwood area.
As Earth Day 2013 approaches the kids, ages 5 to 13, are getting ready for a cleanup at Country Place Park. This Monday, April 22, which is Earth Day, they’ll converge on the park from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. to give it a facelift.
To make that happen, however, they’re looking for a little help from area businesses and residents.
The children are in need of such donated supplies as:
- Cleaning supplies
Donations can be dropped off at the 14457 N. Dale Mabry Highway school. Donors can also contact Sheri Angwin, Ingram’s owner and an instructor.
The cleanup is part of an ongoing effort to teach kids more than just how to throw punches and kicks, Angwin said. About 15 children are expected to take part in the Earth Day event.
“They are learning to take an active part in bettering their community,” she said.
For more information, contact Angwin at 813-969-4777.
Ingram's has been operating as a family owned business in the Carrollwood area since 1977.
