PHASE 1 -> PHASE 2 -> PHASE 3 -> PHASE 4
Have a SAFE and Happy Labor Day 

The SAR/MLS will be closed on Monday, September 7th, 2020 in observance of Labor Day  
ON NOW through Sept 18th
We would like your office to participate in a "Friendly, Fun Food Fight" competition by signing your office up for a GoFundMe page.   
The winning office who brings in the most money will be presented a nice wall plaque that the office can keep for the year!   
If you are not actively fundraising for Second Harvest yet, please get going!  We are not being asked to staff the Albertson's stores this year, saving us precious time.  What is your time worth?  If you have a sense of your hourly value, please donate two hours worth of your hourly value (e.g., if you "bill out" at $150 an hour, please donate $300).  Please consider being a leader in your office and donating to your Go Fund Me account and promote it to your offices. 
With your help, we can make this the biggest "Friendly, Fun Food Fight 2020" competition.
If you have any questions, contact the Chair Judy Flemmer 216-1135 or Tami at the SAR 326-9222.
