OPUS for Person-to-Person’s Balloon Day is now Blooms for Campers; the same fundraiser (raising funds to send low-income kids to summer camp) with an earth-friendly spin. — an announcement from OPUS for Person-to-Person
The Balloon Day event has gone green: This year, eco-friendly wildflower seed packets and burlap ribbons have replaced the non-biodegradable red balloons that littered the Sound and were harmful to sea animals. Blooms for Campers celebrates nurturing our neighbors, as well as the earth. The Blooms for Campers fundraiser will run from Monday, April 12 through Saturday, May 1. On May 1, OPUS volunteers and their children will tie red burlap ribbons on donors’ mailboxes and storefronts throughout town.
