Upcoming Fundraising Event - St. James Episcopal Church Youth Group

Every summer my girls attend a Youth Group Workcamp trip that my church organizes.  Last year they went to Port Jervis, NJ and assisted homeowners with fixing items in their house or on their property that they either couldn't fix themselves or couldn't afford to hire someone to fix for them.  This year's trip is to Parma, Ohio and the youth group is currently raising funds to support the trip for themselves (approximately 20 kids) to take this trip. 

St. James Youth Group Workcamp Trip 2012 - Port Jervis, NJ

In order to assist the youth in raising funds, I will be running a Christmas Card Workshop Fundraiser.  The workshop is scheduled for Saturday, December 1 from 10:00 am - 12:00 noon in the Undercroft of St. James Episcopal Church in Potomac, MD.  We will be making a total of 15 cards (5 cards each of 3 different designs) with envelopes and an adorable little tote to hold them (Originally designed by Lisa Stenz).  Once you send out your cards, you can use the tote as a gift bag for someone special.  The total cost of the workshop is $20 and all materials are precut and presorted for you.  Please contact me via email at if you are interested and I will provide you with all the details.  If you are unable to attend, the kit will still be available for purchase.
