Honest Earl's Bargain Basement Raises $1,175 for Schoolyard Greening!

Saturday morning, October 18, our school lunchroom was transformed into a bustling cafe and lively second-hand clothing sale. Thanks to all the donors, shoppers and bakers, we raised $1,175 for schoolyard greening. Clothing was also donated to local charities such as Red Door Shelter and Massey House.
Thanks to Small World Cafe, just East of Coxwell on the South side of Danforth, for providing the amazing coffee!

Thanks to Sheryl, prime mover and shaker, and all the many volunteers who helped put together this wonderful event! Keep your eye out for an upcoming sale this Spring!!
