Yard Sale – We need donations from everyone for this – be saving up and bring it to us that morning. If you have any large items that need to be brought early, let us know so we can come up with a plan.
Bake Sale – Help by bringing treats to sell to those waiting to have their car washed.
Car wash – Help by bringing buckets, sponges, etc. The students will need to sign up to help for this part.
* We will be having 2 locations this time to hopefully double the car wash income!
