A yard sale combining household items donated by more than 40 families will be held Saturday, February 16th at Solano Elementary School at 15th Ave. and Montebello in north central Phoenix. The gates open at 9:00 am.
Sponsored by Phoenix West Rotary Club, the event will include more than a 4,000 items collected in recent months from Rotary members and other families throughout the Valley.
All proceeds to benefit the Teacher Mini-Grant Program of the Osborn School District Educational Foundation.
Phoenix West Rotary held its weekly meeting at Osborn Middle School on April 21. Here is an excerpt from the club’s newsletter:
“Phoenix West Rotarians met at Osborn Middle School this week to learn more about the teacher mini-grants funded through their generous contributions in honor of former superintendent, Dr. Wilma Basnett. OMS teachers Julia Georges, Anna Feria and Erin Tikovitsch shared overviews of their mini-grant projects and the benefits to students. OMS band students Jessie, Victoria, Victor, Kylie, Emyah and Mario assisted in the presentation by demonstrating the value of using technology to record their performance progress. Rotarians also presented the district with $375 in gift cards to be distributed to families in need of food over the summer break. Thank you to Sandy Petersen and his fellow Rotarians for their generosity to Osborn students”
