Fees & FundRaising
Hello SilverRays Families, 
 
As you may have noticed during registration, we have a Fundraising Commitment in place for the team and I wanted to give you a quick update on some of the fundraising opportunities this year. 
 
1. We will be having a "social distancing" bottle drive later this month on September 26. In order to properly social distance we will provide flyers the week prior at the tailgate party which can be dropped off at houses in specific neighborhoods asking people to leave their bottles out the morning of the event so we can pick them up. 
 
2. Start saving your good will donations as we will be doing a fundraising event where we collect used clothing, household items and more to donate to Value Village here in Sherwood Park. This fundraising opportunity pays by weight so the more you collect the more we earn. Please try to keep clothing, shoes and bedding separated from home decor, household goods, and toys, etc. This will likely take place sometime in October and then again several times throughout the year.
 
3. We are planning a raffle of some sort towards the end of the year (November/December) with further information to follow.  
 
4. One real easy option to fundraise is by using the app / website FlipGive. This gives money back for purchases made through the website and is very handy for things like gift cards, back to school shopping, grocery shopping, Christmas shopping, restaurants, etc. There are a lot of options including Amazon, Sobeys, Walmart, Indigo and more.  To sign up and start earning money on FlipGive just follow the instructions below.
