Annual Silent Auction - Held during our Annual Holiday GALA
The Silent Auction is a great way to help raise money for a local chairty(s) with items attendees of the Holiday Party & Awards can bid on through our bid app. If you have items you would like to donate, please contact our committee. We also take toys for tots at the Holiday Party and need help with the onsite logistics.
Calling all Denver IFMA Members! It's that time of year again and the IFMA toy drive is upon us! With holiday gatherings in question and no one knowing how the next two months will look, we are going to be doing things a little differently this year. Instead of bringing your toy drive donation to the holiday party, we have populated an Amazon list full of toys for the Tennyson Center kids.
A video consultation with Santa resulted in a very special wish list. Follow the link below to help make this holiday season incredibly fulfilling for these very deserving kiddos. Once you have chosen the toys, you will have an option to send the toys directly to Tennyson Center For Children, make sure to pick that delivery address.
Please dont let the virus ruin our toy drive for these very appreciative kids!
WHY? Watch these quick videos about the kids:
We also are annoucing the Awards Gala this year will be virtual. BUT, we still need your items for the silent auction. Please donate by Dec. 1st. The silent auction will be online shortly and more details will follow!
SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE
The community service committee is excited to announce that we will be going forward with our annual school supply drive. This is the third year, and while it will look a little different, we feel could be the best year yet. As schools gear up for a unique year, getting supplies to every kid is more important than ever. While we will not be able to collect and sort due to COVID, we have put together an Amazon list with options to buy supplies for the kids. Along with backpacks, this year we are looking for used computers to be donated to help with remote learning. Below you can find a link to buy supplies/backpacks and the minimum requirements for laptops.
School Supplies (200 backpacks is our goal!) We will ask for more in 2021.
If you have a laptop that fits these criteria, and are willing to donate it, please contact Max Segall at [email protected], to schedule pick up of the device.
