Minneapolis Employees Stop to Smell the Roses
The Minneapolis District Sales Center recently volunteered at the 30th Annual Friends School Plant Sale.
Friends School Plant Sale is a fundraising event sponsored by the Friends School of Minnesota, a kindergarten through 8th grade Quaker school in St. Paul. The sale is held once a year on Mother’s Day Weekend at the Minnesota State Fair Grandstand. The event is entirely volunteer-run and is one of the biggest fundraising plant sales in Minnesota.
The team spent the day organizing and watering plants, being cashiers and helping the shoppers move through the sale. The Graybar team also used their sales skills to encourage shoppers to donate cash to the scholarship funds beyond their purchases. They estimate they generated an extra $2,500 for the scholarship fund.
