The first round of yard sale signs was so successful, the Waukee Community Schools Foundation has opened up a second and final round of orders. Waukee district families and community supporters have one more chance to purchase signs reading #GiveLove, We Miss Our Teachers, We Miss Our Students, and personalized Class of 2020 Seniors through midnight on Wednesday, May 6. Orders may be placed through RevTrak here: https://waukee.revtrak.net/waukee-foundation-/yard-signs/#/list.
The signs will be distributed on May 15 at South Middle School. Last names A-M will pick up from 2-4 pm and last names N-Z will pick up from 4-6 pm. “At our previous pickup, it worked really well for families to display their last names in their car windows. Our volunteers were able to keep the line moving and quickly locate each family’s sign while practicing safe social distancing,” said Gina Campos, Executive Director of the Waukee Community Schools Foundation. If you can’t make it on Friday, May 15, there will be an alternate pickup on Saturday, May 16, from 10-11 am, also at South Middle School.
The first round of orders raised $2,844 for both the Waukee Area Christian Services Food Pantry and the Waukee Community Schools Foundation. The second round of orders will benefit Meals from the Heartland, which donated weekend Grab and Go meals for Waukee families. $3 from the sale of every sign will go to Meals from the Heartland, and $3 will go back to the Foundation.
“It is so exciting to see the signs up all over Waukee! It’s a great way to show we’re all in this together, even though we need to stay apart right now,” said Campos.
