Apparel Sales with Year end Ask Kickoff @ Front entrance at Buckman
Nov 29 @ 8:20 am – 9:00 am

Celebrate the kickoff of our Year-End Ask campaign on Tuesday, November 29 — also known as #GivingTuesday! We’ll be at the main entrance for school drop-off with apparel sales and warm beverages from 8:20-9:00am. Buy a beanie, add on a gift to the Foundation, and watch our Year-End-Ask-O-Meter grow. Our goal is to reach 75 gifts to unlock the funds pledged by our Challenge Match Sponsors. Any gift – be $1, $10, or $100 – gets us closer to our goal!
