Ce-Ce Gerlach rocked South 16th Street this afternoon with a block party to raise funds for school uniforms. The block was packed with people enjoying several carnival attractions, music and food. From all reports, the new Allentown school uniform policy seems to have gotten off to a good start, but one issue is the cost of the clothes. With a large, low income student body, this can become a family hardship. I'm sure Ce-Ce's organizing abilities will help with this problem. I've had a couple of conservations with Ce-Ce this past month, and I believe she will be a factor in Allentown's future.
To donate to the school uniform fund, make check payable to RCDC, 144 N. 9th St. Allentown, Pa. 18101. Write Uniforms on memo line.
