Community Day Booklets: Info

P.E.T. P.A.L.S. will be selling coupon books in Younkers at one of the entrances at the College Square store on Friday, April 27 between 11-1pm and 1-3pm and on Saturday, April 28, between Noon and 2pm and 2-4pm. We haven't been assigned to an entrance yet, but you can say to look for us at a table at one of the doors into the store. There will be other groups selling coupon books, too, so  look for us with our official P.E.T. P.A.L.S. T-shirts on!

Community Day Booklets 2012

Once again, P.E.T. P.A.L.S. will be selling Younkers Community Day coupon books to raise money for our organization.  Since this is one of our main sources of income for the year, we depend on these funds to cover much of our operating expenses.

     This year, Younkers Community Day will be held on Friday, April 27 and Saturday, April 28 – adding an extra day to take advantage of their sales and discount coupons.  Each coupon book costs only $5.00 and includes a $10 off coupon and many additional discount coupons.

The best part is that P.E.T. P.A.L.S. gets to keep all of the money from the sale of the booklets!!

     Coupon books will be available for purchase at the Volunteer Appreciation dinner.  Please help us by buying a coupon book.  If you can’t use it, buy it for someone else or buy one or more as a donation to P.E.T. P.A.L.S.!  Those needing coupon books, but are unable to attend the dinner, may contact someone on the advisory board.
