Innovate project supplies needed...

The troop needs your help!  We are trying to gather supplies for our INNOVATE project to begin this Sunday at 2:00pm.  If you are able to donate a vinyl tablecloth (any size)--the ones with the cotton backing--any design works for this project-- and/or a package/roll of adhesive velcro, please let me know!  The girls hope to make 200 of the reusable sandwich bags to donate to our community on March 17th.  If every girl could provide at least one tablecloth, we would not have to dip into troop funds to buy these.  If you know a business that might donate some (maybe Christmas or Valentines tablecloths that are on clearance)  PLEASE ask them!  The girls will get so much from this project:  they will learn a little about sewing, about using everyday materials to make something new, and the benefits of reusable materials.  Better yet they will get to share this new knowledge with the community...THEY will be the givers and the teachers at Going Green Day at Cameron Park Zoo. 

Also, remember that Sunday is the last day to turn in your recyclables for the recycle badge.  Items that count are printer cartridges, old cell phones, old digital cameras, old Ipods, old MP3 players, and anything with an internal rechargable battery.
