Sale Helps Expand Learning Opportunities



On Saturday, March 21, the semi-annual Owen J. Roberts Education Foundation Consignment Sale took place in the Owen J. Roberts Middle School.

The Owen J. Roberts Education Foundation Consignment Sale is a great sale for everyone and an event with a triple bottom line: profit, people and planet. Sellers earn money recycling pre-loved children's clothing, books, and toys. The Education Foundation earns a portion of the profits to give back to the District to fund classroom innovation.

The Ed Foundation works to directly impact student learning by funding projects which provide a significant and defined benefit to students. They fund projects and events which may represent a new educational initiative, fall outside normal budget or planning considerations, and/or explore use and integration of new technologies. Ed Foundation funding helps expand student experiential learning opportunities.

At the end of the sale, a box truck was loaded with baby furniture, clothing, blankets, shoes and other necessities all to be donated to a local charity serving families with need. In the end, everyone profits and the planet is cared for through the recycling of goods.

Owen J. Roberts Education Foundation thanks everyone who helps out with this event including Jessica Marzella Photography, for taking and donating these photographs!

Mark your calendars--The next sale is September 12, 2015.
