Please consider ordering your tree from us and having it delivered to the school.
Your tree will be lovingly displayed at our Winter Fair first and then available after for you to pick up and enjoy the rest of the holiday season. Trees may be collected by the families that purchased them at the school after 3 pm on Sunday, December 4th. By sharing your tree with us, you are not only helping make the Winter Fair experience become a reality, but all tree sale proceeds go directly support the 91st local Scout Troupe.
If you want to order your tree in person, please visit the Grant African Methodist Episcopal Church (2029 Gerrard Street East) on Wednesday, November 30th, 2016 between 4 pm – 8 pm. Please make sure Warner, our Equinox contact, knows your tree is for the Winter Fair and records your name. He will be more than happy to help you find the perfect tree.
REMINDER: 4 pm – 6 pm park on north side of Gerrard only.
You can also visit the tree lot on Thursday, December 1st, by appointment only. Book your appointment by calling Warner at 647-821-2516.
Please donate your delicious homemade baked goods to the Equinox Winter Fair and help us raise funds for the school.
Baked goods can be dropped off, with a list of ingredients used, at the Winter Fair baked goods table at 11 am on Sunday, December 4th.
For questions email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Drop off all Winter Fair raffle basket donations to your child’s classroom.

Every year we need a lot of hands to make over 1,000 hand-made treasures for the Children’s Store. If you like to craft or want to learn how, please email us. We can either supply you with a crafter’s kit (comes with supplies and instructions) or you can make your own favourite crafts. This is a great way to volunteer from home in your spare time while giving back to the school.
On the day of the event we need a Volunteers Coordinator to help all our volunteers check into their different stations. If you love people and keeping things organized, we need you!
WINTER FAIR COMMITTEE MEMBERS
There are plenty of little jobs to do and your input is welcomed as well! Become a member of the Winter Fair Committee and have fun getting to know fellow Equinox parents while giving back to the school.
Perhaps there is another way you would like to help that we haven’t thought of?
Send an email to the Winter Fair Committee.
