TEXARKANA, Ark. (KTAL / KMSS) – A non-profit organization in Texarkana is organizing a fundraiser this weekend to teach children about the difficulties of being a teenage parent.
“Just Love & Kindness,” which is a car and bike show, is scheduled for Saturday to raise money for electronic dolls. The event will take place on Broad Street in downtown Texarkana. The street will be filled with unique cars, bikes, bounce houses and food tents.
The group wants to raise enough money to buy at least 20 dolls, which cost around $ 400 each, to donate to local high schools.
“I hope this will reduce the number of teenage pregnancies. Not only young girls will wear them, but young men too, ”said Just Love and Kindness co-founder Robert Klein.
Co-founder Robert Klein says Texarkana, Arkansas Mayor Allen Brown is a barbecue attendee.
registration starts at 8:00 a.m. and the event starts at 2:00 p.m. For more information call (903) 278- 6083 or email [email protected]
