Drop off Depot

Auction Corner: This week’s highlight is Drop Off Depot!!

Drop Off Depot Week for our upcoming auction is September 23-27. Hoping this will help families plan and support. We’re grateful and appreciative of all efforts made by our families!

The following are some FAQs regarding DOD:

WHAT IS DROP OFF DEPOT?

A week in which families can drop off individual/family donations that can be used for either Silent (or Live, depending on the donation, but mainly Silent). These donations are not associated with donations connected to classroom projects. They get dropped off on the morning before school or after school the entire week.

WHAT ARE EXAMPLES OF ITEMS DONATED DURING LAST YEAR’S DOD?

Last year we had gift cards from the scrip table, printers, spa items, surf lessons, vacation homes, cooking lessons - basically anything that you think we can use to create a package. Be creative! This is a great time to donate a tin and offer to bake cookies once a month for x amount of months, etc

WHY IS DOD SO EARLY???!!

Um, it's actually not. DOD ends on September 27. and that weekend the auction committee will gather to "package" items together. After that, we will have less than 2 weeks to ask the community for other items and accept straggling donations. After the 11th, we're writing up the booklet and trying to ensure all packages are solid. Then, until October 25, we're getting the Auction book approved and making edits. The current hope & plan is that we'll have the book out to everyone by October 30th, 2 weeks before Auction. It's actually a VERY tight schedule..so, as you consider when to give your donation, please take into account all the background work that is happening. We'll accept all donations, at any time, but in order to REALLY get more bang for your buck on your donations - the earlier we get them (Drop off Depot week) the better for everyone.

OTHER THINGS NEEDED?

Baskets!!!if you have any baskets laying around the house that you want to get rid of feel free to donate them to the auction. The baskets are used to hold all the contents of a package together.

IF I HAVE QUESTIONS, WHO CAN I ASK?

Your Auction rep! Or anyone from the Auction Committee. We're all happy & willing to help!
