29th Annual Crayola Sale in Support Of United Way Of City Of Kawartha Lakes
The 29th annual Crayola Sale for the United Way for the City of Kawartha Lakes (UWCKL) returns on Saturday, October 14th.
The popular cash-only sale offers Crayola products — including crayons, markers, paints and kits — at discounted prices. For past sales people have camped out in advance to get the best selection.
Crayola Canada has already donated just over $950,000 to UWCKL, primarily through the employees’ workplace campaign, and aims to reach the $1 million through the annual sale.
“We are very fortunate that the annual Crayola Sale can assist children, youth, and adults in the City of Kawartha Lakes,” says Mike Soehner, Human Resources Manager at Crayola Canada. “The sale started simply as a yard sale with a few Crayola products added in. It was the beginning of a long-term relationship and, thanks to the efforts of countless volunteers from Crayola, the UWCKL, and the community, it has grown to its current form.
“This year, we are very proud to say that we have an opportunity to attain the $1 million mark in total donations. Please come out and help us achieve that goal.”
Proceeds from Crayola Canada donation, including the sale, will help thousands of people in the City of Kawartha Lakes who use UWCKL services.
“Crayola Canada and its employees are amazing community champions,” says YWCKL Executive Director Penny Barton Dyke “In nearly three decades, this company and its dedicated employees have helped thousands of people from across the city. Their leadership is a true testament to working with others to build commitment and healthy supportive communities. We also need to recognize the Lindsay Ex for its outstanding support as it has contributed the venue both at its old site and its new site.”
The sale takes place at the LEX Fairgrounds (354 Angeline St. S., Lindsay) from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. More than 150 volunteers will be helping at sale (cash only).
