$1-2-3 Clothing & Bargain Bike Sale is Coming!

It's almost time for 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.

Here's how you can help:

Drop Off Your Gently Used Clothes & Bikes- pack up those clothes, shoes, coats, and costumes. Give us your outgrown bikes. Package donations in labelled bags or boxes by size and drop them off Thursday, Mar. 14 from 4-7 PM or Friday, Mar. 15 from 9 AM - 2 PM and 4 - 7 PM. Donation receipts are available.

Help Out - 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: Can't help out but want to help us advertise? Print out the flyer below and post it around town in laundromats, bulletin boards, or anywhere you think might have an interest!
