Together in Education (TIE), the parent- teacher group at R.C. Waters Elementary, will be hosting The Santa Shop on Friday, Dec. 14.
At the Santa Shop, students can purchase gifts for family, friends and pets in the safety and convenience of their own school.
Businesses that wish to participate can reserve an eight foot table in the gym at RC Waters. Items for sale should be priced $1-$5. TIE will provide small white lunch sacks for the students to use to “wrap” their gifts.
The goal is that the children learn the importance of saving money, shopping local, and planning their purchases in a positive learning environment.
TIE feels that it is important to support local businesses and economy.
There are 475 students in R.C. Waters School, plus teachers & staff. The charge to vendors is $10 per table, to help with the cost of hosting the Santa Shop. The event will run from approximately 8:10 a.m-2:30 p.m., with set-up available prior to the event. TIE will provide lunch for all vendors. The Santa Shop Committee will review and confirm all table reservations due to the limited number of tables/space and to avoid ‘like-type’ businesses.
Vendors who want additional information or to reserve a table can contact Valerie Winterfield at the Oak Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce, 161 W. Water St., Suite A, Oak Harbor, 43449, or LIKE on Facebook at Together in Education (TIE).
