Just a couple short but exciting announcements.
We begin collecting items for our annual spring flea market today. You may take your items to our storefront at the East Lake Shopping Center (2145 Roswell Road, Ste. 40 Marietta, GA 30062.) Volunteers will be accepting drop offs from 10-2 on Fridays and Saturdays and 12-3 on Sundays or by appointment during the week.
You may download a flyer with additional information on our website. And once you’ve downloaded the flyer, why not send it along to some friends and family? Remember this is our largest fundraiser of the year and we need a lot of items to make it so successful!
If you are interested in helping with the flea market set-up, you may sign up for a shift here.
And secondly, Southwest Airlines is celebrating their arrival in the Atlanta market by giving you a chancee to support YOUR favorite local nonprofit AND enter for the chance to win a trip for 2 to Las Vegas via Southwest Vacations. Good Mews is very pleased to be one of those local nonprofits.
We are one of 15 finalists for a $25,000 grant! Our chances are really good but we still need a lot of support. Please go to http://southwest.promo.eprize.com/grant/ and vote for Good Mews in the small charity category. Voting is open tp residents of the state of Georgia who are 18 and over. You may vote once a day until March 18th. Please vote everyday and encourage all of your Georgia friends to do so as well. You can imagine what $25,000 would mean to our shelter!
