Last month, the Laurel BNI Thursday Breakfast Chapter provided a $500 donation to Side by Side, a faith-based Laurel nonprofit that works to improve Prince George's County public schools in Laurel.

The check was presented to Side by Side president Joe Murchison, a past editor of the Laurel Leader, Sept. 27 at the chapter's Visitor Day at Famous Dave's on Baltimore Avenue in Laurel.

Side by Side holds monthly Family Academies, with parenting workshops and children's enrichment activities for families from Laurel's seven elementary schools. Future plans include a community-wide tutoring program and school-based enrichment programs.

The Laurel Breakfast Chapter meets every Thursday from 7:30 to 9 a.m. at Famous Dave's, 14140 Baltimore Ave. For information, contact Don Thomas at 301-604-8700.
