WOULD YOU LIKE TO ORGANIZE THIS EVENT NEXT YEAR?
This year's 'Secret Shop' was held Saturday, December 7, 2013.
The Secret Shop is one of Mansfield's favorite traditions! It provides children, in grades Kindergarten through Fifth, an opportunity to purchase reasonably priced ($1-$5) holiday gifts for family and friends in a fun environment. Volunteer “Elves” (middle school students) assist children while they select gifts. As the children shop, parents can enjoy a snack and coffee from the concession stand and participate in an MEF raffle.
This is a great memory-making event for K-5 students and volunteer elves. But, the event truly benefits all school-aged children in Mansfield's public schools. Proceeds from Secret Shop are returned to our schools through science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) grants.
