Time to Fundraise!

January 03, 2023

Did you know that the PTA supports and funds various programs for your children each year? Including but not limited to Afterschool T.I.G.E.R.S. Programs, School Assemblies, 8th Grade Dance, 4th and 8th Grade Promotion, 5th and 6th Grade Halloween Party, and more…

Did you know that this cost around $30,000 a year? We can only accomplish this if we fundraise!

Yesterday, 4 of our board members dedicated 6 hours to sorting, packing and distributing over 600 Kidstuff books... for students at Willow Grove & Hatchery Elementary Schools. Last year, we profited over $5000 from our Kidstuff fundraising efforts and we are hoping this year we can earn even more. As a non-profit all the funds raised go right back to the children and schools, so the more we earn the more we can give.

Books will be sent home on Wednesday, September 6th and we'd love your support!
