Bridgewater Elementary School 3rd Grade students from Northfield will once again be holding their annual garage sale to benefit the animals at Prairie’s Edge Humane Society! The garage sale will be held on Friday, May 3th from 10:30 AM – 3:00 PM in rooms 109 and 110 at Bridgewater School. All proceeds from the garage sale will be used to help the homeless animals at PEHS. This is an annual project for the students at Bridgewater. In previous years they have raised over $1000 for the animals.
The students use the shelter as a project each year, checking our website every morning to moniter the adoptable animals. The students do the work of organizing sale items, waiting on customers and keeping track of sales. This is a great project and we are so excited to be a part of it.
The students will also be visiting the shelter later in May for a tour and to deliver supply items used at the shelter which they have purchased.
We are very grateful to the teachers, students and staff from Bridgewater Elementary School. This is a great opportunity for community members and parents to help these wonderful students raise money for a cause they have chose to support. Bridgewater School should be proud of its students and of their teachers for educating these young people in giving back to their community.
Please mark your calendars and support the 3rd Graders of Bridgewater Elementary School in their class project to help Prairie’s Edge Humane Society!
