GMHS Athletic Boosters Mulch Sale Underway

The George Mason High School Athletic Boosters Association is sponsoring a spring mulch sale now through Tuesday, March 22, with delivery of mulch on Saturday, April 2. For the 23rd year, student athletes will donate time on April 2 to load and deliver mulch to homes throughout Falls Church.

This is the Athletic Boosters’ largest fundraiser and proceeds are used to provide student scholarships, end of season and Hall of Fame banquets, banners that hang in the Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School gym, as well as big ticket items, including the baseball/softball field lights and equipment purchases.

The high quality, shredded hard-bark mulch comes in three-cubic-foot bags, which sell for $5 each. Order forms are available online and at the Falls Church Community Center at 223 Little Falls Street, Mary Riley Styles Public Library at 120 N. Virginia Avenue and all Falls Church City Public School offices. The Athletic Booster recommend that those who purchase mulch make a note when ordering of where they want mulch to be placed on delivery day.
