Any plans for this Thursday? San Diego is coming together for Twestival to support San Diego After-School All-Stars, which provides after-school enrichment for more than 2,500 local students from low income areas. They cover 18 schools, and are rapidly looking to expand coverage area to students who need them the most. Through academic, athletic and career development activities, children are given the support to succeed in school and life, while being exposed to positive mentors and role models. Your support helps the programming touch more lives.
