Dear TMA Parents and Families, 

The school year is almost here! In just a few weeks, The Master’s Academy will be busy with students going to classes, practices, and other activities. Personally, this year is going to be very special to me and my family. Mia and I will have two seniors this year and are looking forward to all of the special memories this will bring our family and friends! 

Another exciting event will be the opening of New to You Upscale Resale, in Alafaya Square Shopping Center. Everything is coming together wonderfully and I feel blessed to be given the opportunity to manage the store. I would like to take this time to remind TMA families about donation and volunteer opportunities. 

There are a number of ways to get your donations to New to You. If you or someone you know has any furniture, clothing, or household goods to donate, either call me at 407-403-0936 or email me at and I will be happy to come pick up the items or meet you at the store. You can also bring the donations directly to the school, any time, during normal business hours. Remember that we are looking for quality upscale items and we will gladly accept clean, quality, new or used clothing, furniture, appliances, sporting goods, books, housewares, and linens. We also accept clean children’s apparel, toys, and books. Please note that we are unable to accept clothing that is missing buttons, has broken zippers, smells smoky or musty, or toys/games with missing or broken pieces. Remember that all of the proceeds from the sales of these items goes directly to the various ministries and activities of The Master’s Academy. Please let all of your neighbors and friends know, too. All donations are tax-deductible! 

Simply put, New to You Upscale Resale will depend on volunteers to be the heartbeat of the store. Since the proceeds of sales go directly to The Master’s Academy’s various ministries and activities, all volunteers can feel great about how their time is spent. The newly renovated space is clean and welcoming and will be a warm and caring place to work. There are many volunteer opportunities that will need filling. They include: 

  • Greet and assist customers 
  • Cashier Receive and sort donations 
  • Price items 
  • Stock shelves 
  • Display merchandise 
  • Test items/repair furniture 

We would love to have you join us. There will be 2 to 6 hour shifts available Monday-Saturday. If you are interested, please either call me at 407-403-0936 or email at for more information. 

In the near future, New to You Upscale Resale will have an active website with lots of good information, pictures, and other information. Families, students, and friends will be able to go to to donate, volunteer, or see the items we have for sale. I would like to thank everyone who has already donated to the store and I look forward to hearing from the rest of you soon!
