As we approach the end of the year we have several announcements to share with you.
We are delighted to announce that we will once again be holding our “Sock-It-To-Me” sock drive in aid of the children at the Marygrove Residential facility in Florissant, MO – www.marygrovechildren.org. Marygrove enriches the lives of children who have come from violent and abusive backgrounds and over 1,100 children are cared for each year. We will be collecting all kinds of socks for children aged 5-18 years of age, for boys, girls, ladies and men’s socks. The Sock-It-To-Me drive will start on November 1st and run through December 16th. All socks can be delivered to the Service Club office any time we are open – Monday – Thursday, 7.30am – 3pm.
We will be having our annual Christmas Shopping day on Monday, December 2nd 2019 from 9am – noon. This is the day we will have volunteers available to help you shop. Thereafter you will be able to shop any day we are open from 9am – noon until Thursday, December 12th. There will be no layaways and payment is expected at the time of purchase.
Attention Braille users: The Service Club for the Blind has, in the past, provided its clients and members a free copy of a Braille calendar every year. These are no longer available in bulk to us. In this regard, if you’d like a 2020 Braille calendar, please call the American Action Fund at 410-659-9315 to request a free one from them. They will send you a maximum of 3 calendars. You can also send an email to email@example.com to request them. The Service Club does have stock of large print calendars available.
Please be advised that the Service Club will be closed for business from noon on Thursday, December 19th and will re-open for business on Thursday January 2nd.
Please remember that there is a possibility that the office would be closed during inclement winter weather. If the office is closed we will ensure that a message is recorded on the answering machine to advise you. A general rule of thumb is that if the public schools are closed, we will most likely be closed as we’d hate for you to be involved in any weather-related accident.
We would like to wish you and your families a happy Thanksgiving and as we move into the festive season, please stay safe.
