Through the 21st CCLC MPACT Afterschool Program at McClellan High School, Brandon House is working with iHUSTLE students to host the 2nd Annual City Wide Re-Up, a community event that targets high school students residing in Little Rock who will benefit from restocking their school supplies, clothes, community support services, and other helpful resources to support a positive performance for the remaining 2018-2019 academic year.
