How Can You Help?
Fall Festival 2022 Volunteer Sign Up
Fall Festival is our largest fundraiser of the year, and our volunteers make it successful. We can't do it without you! It's been three years since St Patrick School hosted its annual Fall Festival. After a long pandemic cooped up at home, it's time to come out and support our school together.
DONATE YOUR STUFF
We are still collecting donations for North Park’s largest rummage sale known as Granny’s Attic which takes place in the Hall during the Fall Festival. This is a chance to unload items cluttering up your home. Please bring gently used clothing, toys, books, small furniture, and household items for us to resell. Please do not bring TVs or computer monitors as we must pay to have them recycled and taken away. Please also don’t bring couches as they are very hard to sell. Hangers for clothing are appreciated. We understand that there are special circumstances that may prevent a drop off on the established dates and times and we want to make this a seamless donation. If you are in need of drop off outside of these hours, please feel free to contact Mr. Manuel Martinez at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is our last weekend to collect donations!
Established collection dates for Granny’s Attic are:
- October 1st and 2nd from 1:00pm-3:00pm
