To make this event a success, we need donations of the following items to the Walerga office by September 1.  Remember, donations can count as parent volunteer hours--keep track of the time spent gathering and bringing in these items, and submit this information from the link on our homepage.

  • 20+ hula-hoops
  • rubber bands (the thicker and stronger, the better!)
  • 4+ matching sponges (large / "car washing" sized)
  • 8+ buckets
  • 4+ tarps (7x9 or 8x10)
  • 16+ pool noodles

Thank you for helping us make this a fun experience for CCAA students!
