The semi-annual Tsukuba International School benefit order will take place on September 22nd at 4 pm at the YMCA/Christian Center. For this special school-sponsored order, FBC will give the school a 5% rebate of the entire general catalog order, and as a group, we also match that (using our volume discount), giving a total of 10% to the school.
For those of you not familiar with FBC, they have three catalogs of mostly American products that can be ordered for direct importation. The main catalog consists mostly of packaged or canned food items, toiletry items, vitamins, etc, while the Deli catalog lists cheeses, frozen meats, vegetables, desserts, etc. from around the world, and certain items from the main catalog that can be ordered individually (as opposed to by the case). There is also a book catalog featuring the latest best sellers, videos, etc.
The advantage of ordering with the group is that you don't have to personally become a member of FBC, you can split cases of items you only want a few of (most items have to be ordered in cases), and the shipping costs are split several ways. If you cannot be there at either ordering session, you can still join the order by the following Tuesday at the latest and as long as you order full cases (or trial cases for certain items) in the main catalog, or items from the deli and/or book catalogs. For more information and/or catalogs, call Tim Boyle at 55-1907.
