West Michigan Christian Schools Partner with B2 Outlet Stores to Raise Funds for Christian Education

We have Our Very Own Outlet Store ! 

West Michigan Christian Schools is excited to announce a new fundraising partnership with B2 Outlet Stores, a faith-based initiative that weaves together an emerging business model with a missional purpose.

For WMCS, that missional purpose is to support preschool through 12th-grade Christian education along the lakeshore of West Michigan at our five schools

B2 Outlet Stores serve the community by selling brand new, name-brand merchandise at reduced prices, then donating the majority of the store profits back into WMCS.

On October 9th, 2019 all five WMC Schools will come together to celebrate the B2 Outlet Store Grand Opening in Muskegon

            …and you’re ALL INVITED! 🎉

Shop, Save & Help Your School Win!

Each of the five West Michigan Christian Schools will receive a unique bar code, which is to be presented at checkout so B2 can keep a tally for sales for each school.

At the end of the academic 2019-2020 school year, the WMC School with the most cumulative sales will win a $250 shopping spree at B2! 

The bar code cards will be available in your school office as of Monday, September 16.

Already shopping at B2 and forgot your code? Tell the B2 cashier which school you are affiliated with and they will take care of it for you! 

To prepare for the Grand Opening, we need all helping hands on deck this month to get the store set up!

Volunteers Needed:

DIBS! Volunteer Call

Over the winter months, some of our regular weekday volunteers will be spending time in the warm South.  This is a great time to do some short-term volunteering in the store.  From January to April we will be in need of extra cashiers during the week.  If you like to create displays or just sort and clean we have just the spot for you too.  We also have a need for delivery drivers.

Pat Cavanaugh and Fred Cooper, our Monday cashiers welcome customers to DIBS!

For families of West Michigan Christian Schools, you can get your annual service hours by working at DIBS! Just bring in a form and we will sign off. You can serve and knock out those hours in one fell swoop! Plus, we get to meet new WMCS faces! It’s a Win-Win for all!
