Holiday shopping in September?!?! And supporting your school at the same time?!?! What better way to get a jump start on holiday shopping and support our amazing school at the same time, than our Fall fundraising sale with Genevieve’s! The money raised from this sale directly benefits every child at Salem and we receive 45% of the profits.

On September 13th, your child received the Genevieve’s catalog, filled with tons of beautiful, high quality items such as wrapping paper, ribbons, kitchen gadgets, cute gifts,chocolate and much more! Please share your catalog with as many people as possible to collect orders (please no door to door sales). Your participation, even just for one item, will be helpful for us to meet our goal. Please fill out your order form (orders can also be done on-line) and send back in your child’s folder by September 30th. It is a fun and easy way to do holiday gift shopping for your family, friends and teachers!

If you are not interested in purchasing any of the items but still want to make a donation, which supports the HSA programs, please feel free to send in a check, made out to Salem HSA, in your child’s folder labeled “Fall Fundraiser”.

Any questions please contact Samantha Stam at samanthastam@gmail.com
