Weekend To-Do: 'Five Days of Giving'

Posted By on Fri, Nov 13, 2009 at 2:00 PM

“FIVE DAYS OF GIVING”
9 a.m., Clinton Presidential Center. Free.

Time flies. It seems like just yesterday that noses were pressed up to the glass at every downtown Little Rock restaurant in hopes of glimpsing Robin Williams or someone more glamorous in town for the grand opening of the Clinton Library (I cut through a roped-off area on way to a bar with some friends that weekend and someone yelled, “Who are y'all?”). But it's been five years. And in that time officials say that the Clinton Center's received 1.6 million visitors. To celebrate the milestone, the center is hosting “Five Days of Giving.” From Friday until the following Tuesday, the Clinton Center hosts a drive to collect new or gently used coats. Donors get a $25 gift certificate at the Clinton Store and discounts at the on-site restaurant, 42. Saturday, all day, admission to the library is free. On Monday at noon, the Clinton School hosts a student service project panel, where Clinton School students will talk about their public service experience at home and abroad. Tuesday, Clinton Center staff and City Year work on service projects around Central Arkansas. You can, too. Sign up at www.fivedaysofgiving.com. The closing event, a luncheon featuring a keynote address by President Clinton, is sold out.
