Fundraising in Economically Challenging Times

Our Volunteers are working hard this week to prepare for the Clothing Sale Fundraiser at Bow Cliff Centre on Saturday, June 4th.
This fundraiser is an answer from the dedicated members to raise money for our centre in challenging times.

“Our Bottle Drive money is way down this year compared to last year”, comments Tracey Braun, Executive Director of Bow Cliff Seniors. “But its not only here, the Boy Scouts did far less on their bottle drive this year than previous years as well.” Why is this happening? Tracey replies ” I did a little research to find out why, and members are giving their bottles to their kids and grandkids, who need the money.”

Bow Cliff Centre relies on donations and funding to keep its programs going. Even in these tough economic times, our dedicated members are prepared to work hard. Hilda Townsend, Clothing Sale Coordinator has a group of ladies organizing and sorting for the sale, as well as people coming in every day to bring bags of clothes for the sale.

Spring & Summer Clothing and Accessories at Bow Cliff Fundraiser June 4, 2011

“We are accepting all Spring or Summer clothes, as well as shoes, purses, jewelery and other small items for the sale.” Says Hilda Townsend, Volunteer Coordinator.  If you can clean out your closet and support our Fundraiser, help us out! There are many people in the city who can use these items, and we encourage them to come check out our sale.

The Clothing Sale is part of the Wildwood Parade of Garage Sales being held on Saturday, June 4th.  Hilda has organized her volunteers to be there on Friday, June 3rd from noon to 8:00pm to allow local people to shop early.
Come by our Fundraiser, get a deal of the beautiful clothing coming in for Bow Cliff Centre’s fundraising efforts.
