SMS Sports Card Club

SMS CARD CLUB RAISES $219.90 for a local food bank

The Stonybrook Middle School Sports Card Club hosted their six annual spring Sports Cards and Collectables Show on Saturday, May 12th. The club held a silent auction at the show and one at school for the teachers and staff. The SMS Sports Card Club collected $219.90 from the two silent auctions. The club made the donation to Southeast Helping Hands. "It's always great to give to others,especially to an organization like Southeast Helping Hands who help the less fortunate in our community," stated SMS Sports Card Club organizer Mr. Don Dewey. A special thank you goes out to this year's silent auction donors:

Alpha Hockey Inc.

Mitchell Express Foods

Steinbach Pistons Hockey Club

Ms. Melissa Mathew

Mr. Brad Unger

Mrs. Brenda Wolf

Mr. Don Dewey and family


Our SMS Sports Card Club sold bottles of water again this year for 25 cents. The 10 cent profit from each bottle of water sold was used to buy groceries for Southeast Helping Hands. This school year, the club sold 285 bottles of water. Therefore, $28.50 was spent on non-perishable food items that were donated to Southeast Helping Hands on Friday, June 1st at the club's wind-up event.
