ARC Buck-A-Bag Fundraiser

Spring has sprung and what better time to get rid of those too small coats, boots and maybe even clothing from last summer!

Bring them to Southmoor during TWO weeks, April 10-21.  Every bag you bring earns Southmoor $1.

--We are currently searching to borrow a large covered unit to store the bags near the dumpsters on

the west side of the school for those two weeks. Please email Karen Long, brieslong@yahoo.com.

Also, if you are looking to take on this easy fundraiser next year, please let Karen or any PTO member know.
