Every Holiday Season Fernwood Elementary runs a Reused, Recycled “store” whereby student have the opportunity to shop for their family members from the selection of goods that have been donated to the school. This year we are short volunteers to set up the store and wrap gifts, as well we are short on items for dads, moms and teens. Might you have some time the week of December 17th to help out or donate some lightly used items for the store?
This is a non-profit, non-fundraising, just for kids event. Every year the kids look forward to and take such pride in choosing just the right gift for each family member. Unfortunately because of the shortage of parent volunteers the store might not run this year which would be incredibly disappointing for the kids.
We have a volunteer sign-up for shifts running from December 17th to 20th (time slots between 8:30am-3:30pm, or sign up for a shift outside of those hours). Click here for the link:
If you have any lightly used items that would make great gifts for moms, dads or older siblings please feel free to drop off anytime during school hours 8am-4pm, the donation box is located just inside the front door.
Thank you Salt Spring!
