As many members of our community already know Market Day was bought this summer by World’s Finest Chocolate and promptly shutdown. The only way to get remaining Markey Day items it to head to your local GFS. GFS will apply sales to a school if you request it so if you are looking for any items you loved be sure to check that out.
All is not lost on easy food options as a fundraiser for the Homewood PTA. We are partnering with Schwan’s Home Delivery this year as our replacement to Market Day. Many people in our community already order from them. There are some definite perks to going with them that will be a plus to many families that used Market Day and may finally allow other families that couldn’t order due to the small pick up window a chance to use a service with better options.
