We Need YOUR HELP! Our Annual BRG is right around the corner and we need gift cards, baskets or items to complete our baskets. PLEASE bring them to our February meeting so we can get started. REMEMBER, this year our Event is at the beginning of April vs the end of April so please sign up for anything! Every item helps the kids that we advocate for 24/7.
If everyone does a little we can get this done….
Our amazing Rhonda Shaw who puts our basekets together will be out of town a few weeks in March so we need to start gathering everything as soon as possible so she can make our special baskets that are exhibited every year!
Gift Cards and Gift Certificates are big sellers at events like the BRG. If every person brings in one gift card on February 11th in any amount, just think what an amazing Gift Card Basket we will be able to put together! It will be AMAZING!
ATTENTION COMMUNITY PARTNERS! WE WOULD LIKE TO ASK FOR YOUR HELP WITH SILENT AUCTION BASKETS, GIFT CARDS OR ITEMS FOR BASKETS!

EVERY ITEM AND EVERY DOLLAR MAKES A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF THESE CHILDREN!
