826LA is a nonprofit tutoring center and retail shop servicing the Echo Park community. For years, the education vision of writer Dave Eggers and his peers that began in San Francisco has developed into a nationwide syndicate of free tutoring centers for children, ages six to eighteen. Each location has a whimsical and humorous theme, and Echo Park's is the Time Travel Mart, a convenience store that carries supplies from time periods throughout history. From canned Mammoth Chunks to false mustaches from every era, there's bound to be something here that will inspire you (or at least make you laugh). All profits from the store go directly to the tutoring program, located just behind the Time Travel Mart. Visit the 826LA Web site for a current schedule or to learn how you can get involved.
