🚸 End of year volunteers needed

🍃 And finally, a stunning garden creates some majestically dir-tee Garden Laundry. If you can pickup the gloves and towels on Tuesday, June 4th, and get them back to school by Wednesday, June 5th, please signup here:
🐌 Ms Kasey also needs donation for the 6th grade end of the year garden pizza party?!🍕 We need TONS of mozzarella cheese, flour, pizza sauce, and firewood.
-6 boxes of firewood (I usually buy the large boxes at Safeway, which might be 20 lbs)
-120 pounds of flour (all purpose/bread flour/ and/or whole wheat flour is OK!)
-Gluten free pizzas (4)
-Pizza Sauce/marinara sauce
-Dry-activated yeast (1 large container from Costco should be good!)
Can you help make pizza/manage the line/pass out pizzas on either afternoon of June 3rd or 4th in the garden? 1:30-3:30pm
We will start accepting donations whenever you can bring them! There is a refrigerator we can put the cheese in. The parties will be on Monday, June 3rd and Tuesday, June 4th in the afternoon. Send your students in with supplies if that is easiest!
