Goodwill Donation Day & Carnival – Aug 6th

LET’S PUT THE FUN BACK IN FUNDRAISING!

This summer, St. Thomas is partnering with Goodwill for a donation drive. Just bring your gently used items to the event and Goodwill will take them all away, issue you a tax receipt AND make a donation to St. Thomas based on the total weight of the donated items. It’s an easy way to clear out your clutter and support St. Thomas’ ongoing mission and programs!

EVENT DATE, TIMES & LOCATION

August 6th, 2016 — Goodwill Collection 9am-2pm, Carnival 11am-2pm
at St. Thomas Episcopal Church, 231 Sunset Avenue, Sunnyvale.
