08/25/2007: "Donated Items For "Dollars For Scholars" Needed"


Dear Island Neighbors,

Dollars for Scholars San Juan Island is a 501c3 non profit organization dedicated to encouraging young people to enroll in education or training programs beyond the high school level. For the last 8 years, we have accomplished that by providing a scholarship to every San Juan Island high school graduate who documents the completion of 80 hours of approved community service during the 8th through 12th grades. About 150 students have shared $150,000 raised in this community through donations and fundraising events.

Our first event toward scholarship funding for the coming school year will be a garage/rummage sale on September 22 from 9 am to 2 pm. Please consider tax deductible donations of furniture, appliances, tools and other garage sale items. Drop off donations between now and September 21 at Consignment Treasures at 6739 Roche Harbor Road and mention they are for the DFS Garage Sale. You may also phone 378-6473 to have large items picked up.

We thank everyone who has supported our efforts in the past and encourage you to again consider gifts this year of your time, surplus items and resources to meet our scholarship goals. “If you think education is expensive – try ignorance.” Derek Bok.

Thanks for your support.
