There's Still Time to Help the Clothing Sale

Our Spring $1-2-3 Clothing & Bargain Bike Sale. This BGS tradition helps you clean your closets, helps our community with low-cost clothes & bikes, and helps our school by raising funds for activities like the Brain Show.

Pack up those outgrown clothes, shoes, coats, and costumes. Give us your outgrown bikes. All items should be in good, sellable condition (no holes, stains, etc.)

Package donations in labelled bags or boxes by size and drop them off TODAY, Friday, Mar. 15 from 9 AM - 2 PM and 4 - 7 PM. Donation receipts are available.

We have to sort all the donations and get them organized for sale on Friday, March 15. Stop by for an hour or join us for a part of the day. It's a great way to meet BGS families and give back to the school. We can also use some volunteers for the day of the sale.

Sign up for a shift here: or just stop in during donation hours - every little bit helps!

Don't Forget to Shop for Some Deals of Your Own for $1-2-3 & Up!
