“Drop Off Your Drawers”
October is the month for this project for Clothes to Kids. The Guild participates by contributing underwear which is given to children who qualify to “shop” at the Clothes To Kids store (babies through teenage) . Oftentimes children who are suddenly taken into foster care leave their homes without any clothes or personal items at all. This project helps make sure that they have new underwear.
All sizes are needed but there is sometimes an extra need for larger sizes, even adult sizes for some of the teens. It must be in the package or hanger or tagged – please don’t take it out of the packaging.
Also important for Tuesday’s meeting:
Pancakes, Pancakes, Pancakes
It’s time for the Applebee’s Pancake Breakfast at Applebee’s (corner of Hwy 19 and Curlew) Saturday, October28, 2017 – 7:30 – 10:00. Tickets $10. Tickets are only pre-sale. Please bring the money to the next meeting.
If you can, please help in the following ways:
- Sell as many tickets as you can. Tickets are $10 and the Youth Guild gets to keep $8 from each ticket. That’s a very good profit so this is a great fundraiser. If you have already sold tickets or know how many you will sell, please let Marie Beaty know. She needs to collect the money Tuesday night so it might be necessary for us to pre-sale the tickets. She will have the tickets at the meeting but she needs to be able to collect the money ahead at that time.
- Sign up to work at the Pancake Breakfast. Servers, greeters, table cleaners, coffee pourers are needed. Let Marie know.
- We need baskets for the raffle. You can even go together with a group and make a gift basket for the raffle. Let Marie know if you can do this.
Please help with the Pancake Breakfast and Please Sell Tickets. In the past we’ve made over $1000 at this event and that’s a lot of profit for just a few hours work. Marie will give us details again at the meeting but please call or email if you have questions.
