You are invited to participate with parents and friends to support Sioux Falls Christian Schools. You do not have to have children at SFC to participate in any of these programs:
5K Run/1 Mile Walk
This is a new event to Sioux Falls Christian. Our first Run/Walk will be held on April 2, 2011. We are excited about this new opportunity to raise funds to help keep the cost of Christian education down.
School families work together each year to make over 6,000 dozen Christmas cookies for sale throughout the community. Because the community has embraced this project, much of the money raised comes from outside our constituency. Nineteen different varieties of beautifully decorated cookies are sold at $6.00 a dozen and carry a message of Christmas hope. All cookies are pre-ordered in October and early November and are picked up on the day of the Cookie Fair (this date is usually the first Saturday in December). Any extra cookies are sold on the day of the Cookie Fair. Typically, this event raises around $30,000 to help keep Christian education affordable.
Master's Touch Auction
The Master's Touch Auction is held each year in the springtime. This fundraiser includes a dessert auction, silent auction and live auction. Our community business neighbors are very generous each year as they donate many of the auction items. Sioux Falls Christian families and supporters donate items as well. This event typically raises about $40,000 to help keep tuition costs affordable for families.
The Golf Tournament is an annual event held in the summer at a local golf course. Community sponsorships help to make this an outstanding fundraiser for our school. It's also a great way for families and community supporters to spend a fun and relaxing day building long lasting relationships. This event is expected to raise about $50,000 this year.
Campbell Soup Labels
Information about the collection of Campbell Soup labels is available upon request. The UPC portion of the label can be clipped along the dotted line along with the point value. These can be brought in all year round to the school office. They are sent in and redeemed for educational equipment and materials.
For more information, contact Lisa Vande Kamp at (605) 334-1422.
General Mills Box Tops for Education
Box tops are available on a variety of products. After they are collected and sent in, the school receives a check from General Mills. Each box top is worth $0.10! The box tops can be handed in to the school office at anytime throughout the year. It is appreciated if the box tops are trimmed along the edge of the coupon but the entire expiration date must be visible and not expired.
Land O Lakes Milk Lids
"Save 5 for School" milk lids from Land O Lakes milk, orange juice, and chocolate milk jugs can be handed in to the office any time. We ask that the lids have been rinsed and dried first. Our school receives $0.05 for each milk lid.
