Thursday, February 15, 2018
Did you know that our amazing carnival needs LOTS of volunteers to operate? We still have over 100 SuperVolunteer positions to fill! Please take a look and sign up to work a game shift, concessions, ticket sales, etc! We need our devoted Symmes community to pitch in for the fantastic event!
And, we need LOTS of SuperDonors to send in snacks and food items for our concessions area! Sign up here to send in items listed on the Sign Up Genius:
We still have need of baked goods for the Cake Walk. Contact Carrie Preissler at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to bake a cake or cupcakes for Cake Walk prizes!
Thanks so very much to our awesome Symmes community for the support to make our Carnival so SUPER!
SCHOOL SUPPLIES & TOILITRIES DRIVE
"SHED THE EXCESS THREADS" CLOTHES BIN CHALLENGE
Who: All 7 Sycamore Schools competing to be the winner
How: Collect the most textiles during the challenge period
What: Shoes, clothing, rags, towels, blankets, sheets, stuffed animals, etc.
Why: 85% of textiles end up in the landfill. These will be recycled and our schools will earn 7 cents for every pound. Collect more, earn more! Money goes into the school accounts!
Winning school will be recognized with an award and featured on social media.
*Did you know??? The average American discards approximately 70 pounds of clothes, shoes and textiles each year. Most of these items end up in the local landfills, which amounts to an astounding 16.9 billion pounds of preventable waste each year. We need your help to reduce this number!
