Olivers Labels Fundraiser, Friends of 165 Robert E Simon Inc

Oliver’s Labels are the perfect way to identify all your kids’ stuff so it comes back home again! Our sticky labels can be used on items that go in the dishwasher, microwave, fridge, freezer and outdoors. How does it work? If you ever lose an item with a Found-it™ code, have no fear! When someone finds the item they will be prompted to go to (see A). There, they will find instructions to enter your unique code (see B). We then match you to the code and send a notification email. Oliver’s Labels acts as an intermediary between you and the finder so you never have to share any of your personal contact information on your labels!
