Help During The Holidays 
We are blessed to have a number of people and businesses supporting SCLO by organizing toy drives or other collections or donating proceeds. By supporting these businesses and their initiatives you'll be directly helping struggling families and individuals in our community.

People's Pottery is holding an open house on Sunday, December 19th between 2:30pm and 4:30pm when 20% of their sales will be given to Second Chance-Last Opportunity. This is an annual event and we hope people will come out to do their holiday shopping and support this great store and SCLO. (St. Armand's Circle)
