Saturday, October 12th at the Daylodge
Sell your gently used gear and make room for something new-to-you! Come support Four Valleys Community School at the FVCS Ski & Sports Swap.
SELL YOUR GEAR: Pick up sales tags and control sheets from the FVCS office, the Girdwood Post Office, or the day of the sale (come early). Please review our Swap Pricing Tips at www.fourvalleys.org.
NEW for 2019–DONATE YOUR GEAR to Four Valleys!
Save yourself the effort of tagging, logging, and bringing your gear to the swap! Four Valleys Community School will gladly accept your gear and sell it for a 100% donation to benefit FVCS community education programs! Drop it off at the FVCS office located inside the Girdwood K-8 School Monday to Thursday after 3 p.m. We will do all the work for you. When you donate your gear 100% to Four Valleys Community School, you are supporting fantastic programs right here in our valley.
Volunteers Needed to make the Sports Swap happen: Each year over 100 volunteers help out at the FVCS Sports Swap. Come give us a hand and help with everything from gear intake, sorting and answering gear questions, to helping with checkout. This event is not just a gear swap, it is a fantastic annual community event for Girdwood. Come join other community members and volunteer. Enjoy a great day with your friends and neighbors and take advantage of volunteer perks–early shopping–before the Swap opens to the general public–and free food.
VOLUNTEER SIGN UP ONLINE: A variety of positions and shifts are still available. Volunteers can work the full day or just sign up for one shift. Sign up early to get your first preference for times. Look for the sign-up online at www.fourvalleys.org.
