I have meant to send this email for a few days, but things have been quite busy.
Your sons hopefully brought home two items this week. First, a FanCloth GBS Football Gear catalog and order sheet. The other item is a large envelope with several copies of a letter from me (varsity players will bring this home tomorrow).
FanCloth is typically used as a fundraiser by various sports teams, schools, and clubs. I am not using this as a fundraiser. Players are not required to order, however, but I like the items they put together and I want to see our players and families wearing as much GBS Football gear as possible in and around the community. All orders and money collected are due back 8/31.
Each football season we have mandated that our players partake in various community service and volunteer opportunities. This year, we are changing it up. I feel it is important that our players and program help others, but I feel we can be more impactful if we support the families and students in our school. In short, we are fundraising for the GBS Special Olympics Basketball Team, so they can purchase new warm-ups and various pieces of equipment. The student-athletes of the Special Olympics Basketball Team deserve to have top notch gear and equipment, like most of the athletic teams at South. Please take a few minutes to read the letter that I have attached to this message. The copies of the letter can be given to neighbors, friends, family members, or teachers. The donations collected for the fundraiser should be placed in the envelope they came home with today.
Thank you for all your support. The football parents are the best!
