Speaking of prizes, we are collecting new prizes (crafts, sports balls, games, toys) in the collection bin in the front lobby. This is a fantastic way to get rid of all of those unopened toys and items you don’t need before the holiday craze is here, and a great way to donate any unwanted gifts after. We also need parent volunteers for the event and middle school students to check bingo cards. Click http://vols.pt/y9boLX to sign up or contact Angie Polizzi, angie_polizzi@hotmail.com.
