If there are any volunteers who would like to help to sort and hang up the clothes, please call Rachel Skelly at 949-496-2615.
After a month or so, the clothes are taken to a shelter so they are put to good use in the community!

CAROUSEL OF POSSIBLE DREAMS
September 27, 5:00 p.m.
South Coast Plaza
Yes, you can come watch!
Many of you have asked if you can come to the Carousel of Possible Dreams event to support WSOC. The actual event is private with fancy food and all, so no you cannot enter that space. But, South Coast Plaza is a public venue which will be open, and there is good viewing of the carousel from the upper level and surrounding areas. So, the answer is YES, you can watch our WSOC riders go round-and-round on the carousel trying to raise funds for our school. If you have a WSOC t-shirt, please wear it. Photographers from the OC Register are covering the event.
A separate email explaining this event and how you can help was sent earlier this week. We are not soliciting funds from our WSOC families, as you are already asked to contribute in so many ways. This is an external fundraising effort, with a generous $10,000 matching opportunity that has been offered by an incredible WSOC supporter! Please forward this link to your friends and family, or you can even put it on your Facebook. Ask these people to visit the Carousel of Possible Dreams website at http://www.festivalofchildren.org/site/TR/Events/TR_Wrapper?fr_id=1190&pg=entry
and click Waldorf School of Orange County!
Make sure it's our school, there are 9 other charities represented.
COLLEGE OF TEACHERS DINNERS
We all know our teachers work tirelessly and lovingly on behalf of our children.
But did you know that EVERY Thursday, the College of Teachers also stays and works together late into the evening? We are looking for more families to help provide meals for our wonderful teachers on these working evenings.
What if...you don't love to cook but have a favorite take-out place? That will work! It doesn't have to be homemade, just heartfelt and tasty!
What if...cooking for 13 people is just too much for you? Grab another family or two to "go in" together.
What if...you don't want to over-commit? Sign up for one dinner only! Or one dinner each semester!
What if...you can do it, but you need LOTS of notice and time to "schedule it in?" Pick any Thursday of the year--it's all on our online signup (it will even send you an email reminder).
To help out, please sign up here!
Or contact Dee Klocke at email@example.com
Thanks so much!
