Members of the Sarasota British Club held a Jumble/Rummage Sale at the Sarasota Center of Light Church to help raise money for the charity Hope in a Backpack. The charity provides food and aid to disadvantaged children throughout Sarasota to help in this difficult economic climate.
The club was inspired to raise money after viewing a segment on “60 Minutes,” titled “The Hungry Children of Sarasota.” The Jumble/Rummage Sale brought in more than $1200, all of which was given to Hope in a Backpack.

PHOTO GALLERY : ODA Crossing the Mulch
Second graders at Out-of-Door Academy crossed the mulch Thursday, May 23 as a symbolic gesture of the lower level entering the higher-level building next year. Third graders crossed the mulch on Tuesday, May 21 but the second graders – next year’s third graders – will be the first second graders to cross the mulch and be in the new building. Out-of-Door Academy donated the left over food to the Salvation Army. Approximately 38 children played games and later crossed the courtyard as parents snapped photographs.
