The Countdown Begins to Winter Festival! Dec.3 from 11-3pm


There are opportunities big and small: donate items for us to sell in our Community Market, make something for the bake sale and community meal, set-up, hang decorations, work a shift the day of the event, take-down. It’s always fun for alumni to come back and sign-up to help too!

Can You…

…Donate art supplies for our Decorations Committee?

-Tree branches (the bigger the better)

– Pine cones

– Large sheets of cardboard (think *huge*, like mattress box or refrigerator box size)

– Acorns

-Tree stumps


As we get closer to the event, we’ll also need pine branches with green needles, even small twigs with needles on them.

Contact Sarah Colomina-Goran at to donate any of these items.

…Sign-up to volunteer or bring in food?

…Bring in a Community Market donation?
