To ensure that the cost of Christian education stays at a level that is financially attainable to everyone, South Shore Christian School relies on a variety of Fundraising Events throughout the school year. In addition to keeping the tuition as low as possible, the fundraising events allows for other Christians in the community to participate in Christian Education.
FUNDRAISING EVENTS AT SSCS:
Baseball Tournament BBQ
This fundraiser involves serving hamburgers, hot dogs and concession type foods at the ladies baseball tournament to players and spectators. Volunteers help with the BBQ, serve foods, set up and clean up. This fundraiser usually runs from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm.
FALL DINNER & AUCTION
This fundraiser involves getting items or services together to be acutioned off at the event. In past events, we have had items such as gift baskets, baked goods, gift certificates, tools, trailers, kids bicycles, generators, flower pots and garage cabinets. Our famous “Dessert Auction” allows for people to bid on homemade cheesecakes, pastries, pies and cakes!!! Services would be things like offering to clean someone’s house, cooking meals, babysitting, etc. Talents are things such as performing at someone’s event, putting together a birthday party etc. We will need help with gathering Goods, Service and Talent prior to the event as well as preparing the “dinner” of soups, chili, and veggies. We also require volunteers for the day of for recording prices, set-up, clean-up etc.
SOUTH SHORE SPRINT – 5K run/walk, 10K run, Kids 1K fun run
This annual event attracts the community to come together for a fun-filled morning of healthy exercise. The venue has been located at the Leamington Waterfront Promenade over the first 3 years, and now along the beautiful trails of Point Pelee National Park. We need approx. 30 volunteers for race day for registration, water station, finish line, and race course traffic. Every family at SSCS is expected to acquire at least ONE Sprint Sponsor.
Coin Drive – Library Books
During this fundraiser the children are asked to bring in pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, loonies/toonies on specific days within a one week timeframe. Volunteers help with counting and rolling money.
Bring your family and friends to watch a family movie. Volunteers help with selling snacks, set up, and clean up. Volunteers work for about 4 hours.
Chocolate Bar Sales
Volunteers help with tracking sales and distributing chocolate bar boxes to families.
Volunteers help with distributing pizzas when they arrive. They may also need to deliver some pizzas depending on need.
5K Run/walk – W.R.A.C.E timed event
An annual 5k (and Kids 1k ) Run / Walk held in May of each year. The South Shore Spring Sprint will bring in numerous community athletes looking for a fun-filled morning including family activities for the kids. We need volunteers for registration, promotion, directing traffic, cheering etc.
Church Presentation and/or Luncheon
Can we host a luncheon at your church? We will plan and organize a luncheon or something similar in an effort to make other Christians aware of South Shore Christian School. For example, a representative of South Shore would make a short presentation to your congregation during your morning worship service with a free-will donation luncheon after church. You dream it, we can help create it… the possibilities are endless. This is a wonderful way to reach out to the community to inform, educate and show the importance of Christian education.
