Fall is upon us, leaves are changing colors and the rain is (yet again) here! As November begins, we are that much closer to December and Home Team Harvest! This year we have expanded our locations north to Alderwood Mall, west to Kitsap Mall and slightly south to Westfield Southcenter Mall. We will of course return to our previous locations; Everett Mall, Northgate Mall, Redmond Town Center, Tacoma Mall and the US Bank in Auburn.
One of my assigned tasks for this year’s Harvest is to try to rally local high school cheer squads’ to add even more enthusiasm to all eight locations. I’ve been calling and e-mailing schools that are close to each drop-off site and asking if they are interested in volunteer their time for a great cause.
If response was slow to come in at first - as soon as I got my first confirmed “yes we will be there”, I was ecstatic. I was off and I hit the e-mailing and phone calling running. Soon I had coaches, assistant principals, teachers, and athletic directors calling me saying how excited they are and their cheer squad cannot wait to participate. In addition, some schools want to start their own collections in order to make a donation on December 4. As of right now, we have eight different schools confirmed and will take as many as we can get. I cannot wait for December 4 and see all of our supporters for our 10th Annual Home Team Harvest. A thanks in advance for our schools who will be participating;
Everett High School
Mariner High School
Glacier Peak High School
Ingraham High School
Redmond High School
Wilson High School
Mt Rainier High School
Olympic High School
We look forward to seeing you all on December 4.
