Most likely, your child has outgrown last year’s school clothes. “They grow so fast…!” So it’s time to trade them in for something new (to you!) First, bring clothing items in “like new” condition (no stains, rips, stretching; no socks, underwear, or swimwear; and recently cleaned) on Drop-Off Day, Thursday, Aug. 29 from 2 to 6 p.m.
Please keep in mind that we cannot accept clothing others would not be pleased to receive. You’ll get credit for each item brought in, which may be redeemed on Shopping Day, Friday, Sept. 30 from 2 to 6 p.m. (10 items maximum per family). Leftover clothing will be donated to Goodwill, and we’ll have crafts available to keep little ones occupied while you shop.
Bring your homegrown bounty of tomatoes and other self-cultivated fruits and vegetables, or your favorite dish that incorporates seasonal produce, on Monday, Aug. 26 at 6:30 p.m.
We’ll award a prize for the most delicious tomato, judged by popular choice. Whether you have a green thumb or not, we need tasters for this harvest feast, so please stop by!
Sample the summer bounty, introduce your kids to homegrown healthy options, and help us crown the best tomato.
