Tacos for Tutoring Tuesday, May 16th

Tacos for Tutoring Tuesday, May 16th

 Please Join us at the Franklin Inn.
“I’m very grateful for the tutoring program at Anchorpoint. I have seen many benefits from my child going there. Some of them are her grades have improved, her self-esteem has gone up, and her attitude about going to school is also better. Everyone at Anchorpoint is very knowledgeable and helpful. I don’t want to think of our school life for our child if would not have found Anchorpoint tutoring.”
Tacos for Tutoring
Visit the Franklin Inn Mexican Restaurant for a meal on Tuesday, May 16th any time between 11am and 9pm!

20% of your bill will be donated to the Tutoring/Mentoring Program at Anchorpoint.

If you don’t like tacos, you can order a burrito, a hamburger or anything else on the menu! Not only will you be enjoying a great meal, you will also be helping children who struggle with school to obtain affordable tutoring through Anchorpoint’s tutoring program.

There will be a guest appearance by the Style Truck weather permitting. 10% of your purchases from the truck will be donated to Anchorpoint for our tutoring program.
“I would not be able to have help for my kids, due to my income, if it wasn’t for the help of Anchorpoint. The tutors are very good with my boys and have taught them to believe in themselves.” 
To help families in need of tutoring support, enjoy a meal at the Franklin Inn anytime between 11am and 9pm on May 16th. Don’t forget to give your server this voucher (click here for a copy). Full details about this event are on the voucher. Share with a friend.
