Organizers of the most recent All-4-Kids Consignment Sale at Wells Elementary School had a few extra hands helping them set up for their October 15th sale of children’s clothing and other items. It turned out that the entire Wells High School Warriors Football Team showed up at the WES gymnasium the day before the sale to do some community service by helping set up the many awkward and heavy tables needed for merchandise displays.

“We were asked by Pam Lear (PTSA co-President) if we could help set up,” commented Wells Warriors Coach Tim Roche recently. “It was game day and we had to catch the bus but, according to Pam, we saved them a ton of time.”

The Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) for Wells Elementary School has been sponsoring and organizing this event since the fall of 2006. According to sale organizer and PTSA member Margaret Borkowski, this bi-annual sale has raised over $50,000 during the sale’s 10 year existence. Borkowski says the first year’s profits were about $750. According to Pam Lear, the recent sale generated $2,600 following payment to the sale’s consignors. Lear added that the next All-4-Kids Sale at WES will take place in April of 2017.

With funds generated from events like this, the PTSA is able to sponsor large annual events at WES including Colors Day and Starz for Broadway. PTSA money is also granted to teachers for requested classroom items. According to Lear, money raised also goes towards student activities and school supplies.
