Community Household Donation Drive


“Easy as Pie and Better Than a Bake Sale.” It rings true when referring to Franklin High School’s Community Household Donation Drive fundraiser, taking place this weekend. For one, the idea is simple: You clean out your closets—c’mon, you’re due for some spring cleaning, aren’t you?—and bring the items to Franklin High School. In turn, you benefit the school’s Booster Club, the Associated Student Body and Big Brothers, Big Sisters of the Greater Sacramento Area. It’s a win-win: you clear some clutter from your home and you support some great organizations. Oh, and you don’t pack on any extra pounds—something that might happen were you to support those organizations by purchasing brownies at a bake sale. If this sounds good, then gather up your clothing, shoes, jewelry, linens, toys, small appliances and more (make sure the stuff is in decent, usable condition, though) and head over to the school at 6400 Whitelock Parkway in Elk Grove this Saturday, April 20, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event, which takes place in the parking lot, is sponsored by Franklin High School in partnership with ReUseIt, which, I am told, came up with the tagline “Easy as Pie and Better Than a Bake Sale.”
