You can help the Marching Statesmen get to Hawaii to represent the Commonwealth of Virginia in the Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade in December. On Saturday, September 14, between 10 am and 2 pm, please bring used "soft" goods including old clothes, shoes, hats, mittens, scarves, ties, socks, nylons, underwear, belts, towels, sheets, blankets, pillows, curtains, tablecloths, purses, wallets, backpacks, bags, fanny packs, and even stuffed animals to the Marshall parking lot to donate to Savers (Unique thrift store), who will pay the band to collect and deliver it. All those items can go in the same bag!
We can also take the following if they are smaller than 18" x 18" x 18" in size in all directions: toys, games, puzzles, jewelry, crafts, mugs, pots, pans, candles, pictures, frames, utensils, small garden tools, china cups, vases, dishes, cutlery, stuffed animals, glassware, silverware, stemware, baskets, ornaments, hand tools, small electrical items, toasters, radio, power tools, irons, blenders, mixers, small stereos, CD players, and small sporting goods. These items must go in a bag or box separate from the soft goods listed above.
Sorry, no books, CDs, DVDs, furniture, or anything bigger than a breadbox that is not a "soft" good from the list above!
Summer is ending, so as you put away those warm-weather clothes, please bring us the outgrown and no-longer-loved ones. Clear out your closets! We hope that every band member will bring at least one yard-trash bagful, and that everyone going to Hawaii will bring 10 yard-trash bagfuls. This is a fast and easy way to finish up fundraising for Pearl Harbor. Ask your friends and neighbors to donate their discards also, and bring them along. Donations are tax-deductible and we will have receipts to give out.
