Rec Center Donation Collection Date Set

The opening of a Youth  Rec Center is moving along and we are asking for the community’s help. We are soliciting donations to set up the space based on what the students have said they would like.  We have developed a Sign Up Genius that you can review and sign up to donate if you are interested. We are looking for some comfy gently used furniture ( couches , chairs, end and coffee tables, area rugs) , art supplies  and materials for a Maker Space , games ( board, video, tables) , large TVs in good condition, small appliances to make snacks and gift cards to purchase miscellaneous supplies such as bins to hold materials, batteries , specific art supplies, paint to spruce up the space. We have plenty of tables and chairs and office desks.

There is a subcommittee of students and adults working on the set up of the space. We have set up a drop off day for all donations on Saturday June 1 from 9-1. If you have gently used furniture or large donations, Mike  Anderson will contact you to view the donation and he will transport items to the Rec Center if needed.  All other donations should be dropped off at the Perley School between 9-1 on June 1st . Volunteers will help unload donations and organize them into categories so dropping off will be just that dropping off. It should be a very quick process.  We are looking for a few for volunteers ( students and adults)who would be willing to be runners, sorters and organizers on June 1st for an hour or two so if you have a little time to give consider signing up on the Sign up Genius.  When we set up Maker Spaces in our schools we did so largely with donations from the community and we hope we can count on that support again.

Please check this link and consider donations and/ or volunteering . Thank you in advance for your help. I am excited about the way the community is coming together to make this Center happen for our kids and I am looking forward to taking this next step in making this safe home away from home a reality.!/showSignUp/70a0e45a4aa2fa4fa7-georgetown/7735985
