I realized that I posted this the first time without being logged into my account so hopefully it will not post twice...Below is a review of the upcoming fundraisers for a local group called KidsRock4Kids that is run entirely by WCHS teens...

FALL FUNDRAISERS TO BENEFIT SCHOOLS FOR SCHOOLS AND A LOCAL VICTIM OF HURRICANE IKE

Washington, IL Sept 17, 2008: KidsRock4Kids is proud to announce the following events / fundraisers for the fall 2008 season. Our efforts in the coming months will be split between our fundraising goals of $3,000 for the Schools for Schools program to help rebuild a war torn school in Northern Uganda as well as raising money to help a local family whom have been impacted by Hurricane Ike. One of their immediate family members was living in Orange, Texas when Ike struck and he has lost everything. After a 16 hour drive each way to pick him up and bring him here to Washington, he is safe but has only the clothes on his back. We are hoping we can help make his loss a little more bearable through our efforts in the coming months.

SEPTEMBER EVENTS
9/18 – WASHINGTON BAKE SALE – WALMART PARKING LOT
Stop by the Washington Wal-Mart parking lot on Thurs. 9/18 between 4 pm and 8 pm for our last bake sale of the season. We will have a few Halloween themed treats as well as our brand new buttons and our new Panther Pops (hand painted pots with lollipops in WCHS colors)

OCTOBER EVENTS
10/1 – 10/30 – LOCATIONS TBA – GIVE A PENNY-CHANGE A LIFE CAMPAIGN
Beginning October 1st we are going to launch the Give a Penny – Change a Life Campaign. For 30 days we will hand painted donation canisters created by local WCHS students will be made available at participating service stations and restaurants. Our goal is to collect as many ‘pennies’(or other spare change) as we can in 30 days. All money collected during this time will be split 50/50 between our fundraising efforts for Schools for Schools as well as helping a local family who are dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Ike.

DATE TBA – SPOOKTACULAR CHILDREN’S ART DAY – WASHINGTON DISTRICT LIBRARY
We are getting the logistics together for another fun (and FREE) children’s day to be held at the Washington District Library. Kids will have over 10 Spooky and Fun Crafts to make including Matchbox candy holders, Bat Pins, Ghastly Ghosts and more!!! We will provide dates and times in the coming weeks.

NOVEMBER EVENTS
The Schools for Schools Street team is coming to Washington, IL to give us a screening of their new movie! This is a must attend event for anyone who is interested in learning more about Schools for Schools and why we are so passionate about helping them. We are actively looking for a place to host the screening. Any banquet facilities or halls who would be willing to donate space for one afternoon, please contact Rebecca Richardson at [email protected] as soon as possible.
