All donated toiletry items will be given to Genesis Home of Durham and all donated canned foods will be given to CAARE, Inc.

Now in existence for over 30 years, AADE continues to strive to expand Kwanzaa to the communities. Additionally, we will have a raffle to benefit the Davis-Williams scholarship fund. The scholarship is awarded to a high school senior that is interested in the Performing ARTS and desire to learn their craft and pursue the Art of dance and or teaching.
