Spring Give-and-Take Event

In celebration of Earth Week, FJMS is hosting a free Give-and-Take Event at Joe Michell School on Saturday April 29, 10:00-2:00 in the Multipurpose Room.

How does it work?

Volunteers will be collecting and organizing items at the school on Friday, April 28 from pick-up time until 6:00pm. On Saturday, all members of our community are invited to come back to the school to take home new-to-you items for free.

Anything left over after the event will be donated.

In addition to donating good-condition items for other members of our community, you can also drop off items that are in not-so-good condition to be recycled! Recycling will be provided by EkoLinq.
