Mabel's Labels Fundraiser

​School Council has launched a great ongoing fundraising campaign to continue working toward phase two of the schoolyard improvement.

Mabel’s Labels are personalized, peel & stick, super-durable labels that safely go in the laundry, dishwasher and microwave. They’re perfect for all your kids’ stuff – from shoes & clothes to water bottles, lunch boxes, backpacks and more! You can also buy labels for many other household and personal uses.

With every Mabel’s Labels purchase that you make under the “Chapel Hill Catholic School” section, 20% will come directly back to support the school, at no additional cost to you!

Please visit http://www.campaigns.mabelslabels.com at any time and choose “Chapel Hill Catholic School (Orleans)” from the “School” drop down menu, and start shopping! Also let friends and family know about this campaign, because every purchase counts!
