We are so proud of the way our community came together last weekend for our 5th Annual Holiday Greenery Sale. Thanks to your efforts, it was in many ways the most successful we’ve ever had. We had more preorders than ever and were entirely sold out by the first hour of the in-person sale! Thanks to that incredible demand, and to generous support from our local business partners (more on them below) we managed to raise more than $11,000! Every dime of that money will go toward ongoing support of our teachers and students.
More importantly, thanks to the incredible efforts of our volunteers, we handled that huge increase in demand in a safe environment in compliance with guidelines on in-person gatherings. Customers waited patiently in line and volunteers remained cheerful through rain and wind to make sure everyone got their greenery in an orderly manner. Thanks to the generosity of people who donated trees, we also provided 12 trees to families struggling economically in this incredibly difficult year. A HUGE thank you to all of you who donated time or ordered your greenery from our sale this year. Your dedication is what makes this work possible.
And finally, a big thank you to the local businesses who agreed to support our school community by sponsoring the sale:
We are thrilled that this sale has become such an important part of the holiday traditions of our community and look forward to building on this success next year to make that the best sale ever! In the meantime, a happy holiday season and New Year to all of you.
