The Treasure Hunt has become so much more than a school fundraiser: it is a community building event which benefits BSM programs and beyond. BSM families donate and reduce unwanted and unused items to a great cause. Community nonprofit partners take unsold items and distribute them through their programs in local neighborhoods to those in need. Some items, such as shoes, are sent as far away as Africa and our students going on mission trips pack bags for their host communities. Please no strollers at the sale.
