I would like to give you an update on what is currently happening at Scotts Valley Educational Foundation (SVEF).
Last week, November 15th, 2006, we had a SVEF meeting and stuffing party all in one.
We worked on the Annual Fundraising Letter Campaign. Marshall thought we folded about 4,000 letters and we stuffed a bunch of the envelopes as well. So we made good progress. We are still working on finishing up the stuffing and hope to do the labeling soon.
The Holiday Tree Lot is coming together. We had volunteers signing up at the meeting using http://www.mysignup.com/sveftreelot to volunteer and help. We are working on advertising in the Banner and the Sentinel. Signs are being finalized. Bake goods are planned to be available. Gloves and twine have been donated by Ace Hardware in Scotts Valley. A big thank you to Wayne Shaffer for letting us use his lot to host our event.
Yesterday Ernie Alexander spent all day wiring the tree lot. Kiwanis has brought the tents, tables and other goodies. Brian Bothman’s group brought fencing, astroturf and more. Shannon seems like she is always there to help. Thank you everyone!
Please tell all your friends and family to come get a tree from us to benefit our schools. If you would like to volunteer to work the lot, contact Donna Humphries at [email protected] or go online and signup at http://www.mysignup.com/sveftreelot.
We will have another meeting Thursday, November 30, 2006 at 7:00pm at the district office. At this meeting we will mainly be working on:
- Complete the labeling of the envelopes and mail them on December 1st.
- Address any needs for the Holiday Tree Lot.
An agenda will come out a few days before to give you more meeting details.
Thanks for being a part of our foundation!
