Message to the Nacogdoches businesses and community from the Paint the Town Purple Blitz planning committee:
Nacogdoches--Who is ready to Paint This Town Purple?!?!
I know we are! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our normal Blitz activities had to be revamped and now we are ready to go...VIRTUALLY!
Here are the updated plans and information for your businesses to get the SFA Spirit Crew and/or SFA Everyday flags to help support the Driving Jacks program that operates every semester as a FREE non-judgemental ride home for our college and community. There are a few MAJOR changes we are implementing in the program this year so please read carefully!
>If you ordered flags last year, look for an upcoming correspondence email/call from one of our volunteers & they will get you set up as well.
>How can I order the flags? You can order your spirit flags by going to www.sfasu.edu/spiritflags beginning on Monday. This can be done with your credit card only. If you want to invoice the order for your business, all you need to do is starting on Monday, Sept 14th, call Kathy @ 936.468.3779 8am-5pm Monday through Friday and she will take your order over the phone.
>You can also order by filling out the form below and contact us to come to pick it up at your business safely or dropping it off at the Chamber of Commerce.
>How much do the flags cost? The SFA Spirit Crew flag is $75 and the Everyday flag is $25. You can buy both for $100.
>How will these flags be delivered? NOW, this is where things have changed, and for the better! Instead of Driving Jacks delivering your flags and picking them up every single weekend, we have turned the SPIRIT CREW flag into a TERM subscription. Driving Jacks will deliver your Spirit Crew Flags on Sept 19th (if you order starting on the 14th) at the location you wish it to be displayed. They will come to pick it up prior to the Thanksgiving Holiday since the students are not returning to campus after Thanksgiving. Then when the Spring semester begins, Driving Jacks will return the Spirit Flag back for the rest of the semester. If you order both flags, they will bring both flags to you.
IF you ordered just an Everyday flag, it will be available for pick up at a designated location. (We will let you know where that will be.)
>Can I order flags after Sept 19th? Yes of course you can! Depending on what flags you order, they will be either delivered to your business by Driving Jacks or available for pick up at a designated location.
>I don't own a business or I live outside of Nacogdoches but I want to buy a flag to help support Driving Jacks, Can I do this? SURE! You can buy an Everyday flag and have it shipped! It will be $25 + shipping.
If you have questions, please contact Nick Stallworth, 936-468-1329 or the SFA Driving Jacks, 936-468-1589.
Thank you so much again for always supporting our mission to Paint The Town Purple which in turn helps keep Driving Jacks operating each year to help our beautiful city stay safe throughout the year.
