Donation & Fundraising News
Donate to Families In Need
BMS recently completed a food drive through our winter dance and we were able to provide food for five different families in our community. We would like to continue to help our community by creating emergency backpacks for students to take home. Emergency backpacks are used at our district Family Resource Center to help families in need. Items needed include: Toothbrush, Toothpaste, Brush/comb, travel size shampoo, soap, deodorant, lip balm, warm socks, washcloth, bottle of water, granola bars, keychain flashlight/nightlight. Non-perishable or canned good meals are also welcome. We will be collecting for these items in Crew classes as well. This is a way for our students to show compassion in our community. We would like to have the first collection by the end of March. Contact Counselor Marlon Funez at 384-5899 for details.

Groceries Add Up
Are you shopping at Whole Foods? BEF, a huge supporter of BMS programs, is the recipient of the Whole Foods “Your Change Makes Change” program through Jan. 15. When you bring in your reusable grocery bags to the Willits store, you can donate your 10-cent-per-bag credit to BEF. Simply let the cashier know you want to donate your dimes -- you’d be surprised at how much this adds up! More info about BEF: www.basaltedu.org.
