Help GSAR do something big for the community by collecting something little!
We know that our members travel a lot during the summer months, so you have access to sample sizes of toiletries that get discarded if you don't need them. These sample items can go a long way toward helping local charities!
Now through October, we will be collecting as many small toiletries as possible, and donating them to Vera House, and the Dorothy Day House. Both of these are local charities that can really use these types of donations! They must be unused bottles/bars of soap, shampoo, lotion, shower gel, toothpaste, etc.
The member that collects the most bottles and brings them in will receive 22.5 hours of FREE CE for 2012! This is a $270 value!
Click here to read more about the contest and learn more about Vera House and the Dorothy Day House. Pass it on to all GSAR members - let's make this BIG!!!
