Grace’s annual Youth Plant Sale is a great way for all 4th-12th graders who are going to summer camp or on a mission trip to earn money to help off set their camping costs. Here’s how it works! Beginning Sunday, April 16, 2017:
- Stop at the Welcome Center to pick up a few Plant Sale Coupons from the basket.
- Write your name and home phone number on the back of the coupons and hand them out to your family, friends, and neighbors asking them to help support your church summer camp experience by buying plants at Eisele Greenhouse.
- Ask them to take the coupon to Eisele Greenhouse between May 1 and June 1 to purchase their flowers, hanging baskets, container gardens, herbs and vegetable plants from the large selection available. They must hand in their coupon when they pay for their plants at checkout.
This fundraiser is a great way for the family of Grace to support our youth by helping them reduce their camp fees. Check out the youth names posted by the coupon basket to see if any of the youth might be your friend, neighbor, someone who greets you as you go into worship, or ushers during the service you attend, write their name on the back of a Plant Sale Coupon. Take that coupon to Eisele Greenhouse between May 1 and June 1 and hand it in when you pay for any flowers, plants, hanging baskets or containers that you purchase. Twenty percent of your plant sale dollars will come back to Grace for that particular youth.
After June 1, Eisele Greenhouse returns all coupons to Grace along with a check for 20% of Grace’s total coupon sales. At the end of the camping season, Grace will mail a check to each camper for 20% of their total individual coupon sales.
