Penguin Patch!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… and maybe the busiest, too! This week is Penguin Patch, where Florence Falcons get to buy sweet gifts for parents, siblings, grandparents and friends. It’s always a favorite event! Please consider donating an hour of your time this week and volunteering in the Patch. Kids need help figuring out what to buy (so many choices!) and help with money. Here’s the handy link to the sign-up form: http://signup.com/go/JJGvfzZ . Thank you!
