Builders Club Paper Towel Drive
CMS Builders Club is hosting a paper towel drive March 20th-24th for Rescue Village. Rescue Village is Geauga County’s humane society and takes care of animals year-round. Rolls of paper towels are an important resource for Rescue Village as they care for animals in need. In 2021, 315 rolls of paper towels were collected here at CMS and last year we only collected 168 rolls. Builder’s Club has set a goal of collecting 250 paper towels this year!
Each advisory will collect rolls of paper towels all week. The class that collects the most rolls of paper towels will win a free day in advisory. There will be one winner for each grade. Please contact Amanda Weaver firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
