Went to a PTO meeting because I now have a Kindergartner. They told us that this was one of the fundraisers they were participating in and for us to please help spread the word.
If you could vote via facebook I'd appreciate it. If your kids' school is there then of course vote for your own... All schools deserve whatever support we can give them. It takes two seconds to do. I didn't even know about this before so I just wanted to get the word out there. The link is for L.C.'s school, but you could search for your own. Thanks in advance!!

You can vote once per week.

Not even a month into school and there is constant begging for this and that. Freggin sad! Miss the Reagan years when supplies were plentiful and all kids ate a real meal everyday and didnt go without food at school. Sad the direction schools are going in.

My kids school did like one fundraiser last year (aside from the monthly market day thing that they send a food flyer home for people to order food.

Laynie's school has to get computers in each classroom because by next year they have to be able to have all of their students do their yearly testing online. Last year they did fundraisers for a smart board for the special needs class and a PDA system.

I did get a newsletter from her teacher asking for money so that she can provide our kids with an afternoon snack since the Kindergartners get hungry and the school doesn't offer one.

Each boxtop gives them .10 and the Target one is worth $1 and takes two seconds to do so it's worth it to me. Should we have not do fundraisers for our kids school? No. But the politicians aren't going to take care of them.

The PTO here is selling trash bags(weird I know). The classrooms are collecting boxtops, Tyson chicken labels, Campbell's labels, Coke rewards points, cell phones, broken laptops, and Red Cross Pharmacy Lids4Kids. They're having a penny drive next week. 

Vicky (Mod) --- 9 years ago -

Will you let me know how the trash bag fundraiser goes or PM me a POC? I saw that fundraiser and was interested in it. 

MrsSmitty10 --- 9 years ago -

What's lids 4 kids?

How do they benefit from old cell phones and broken laptops?

Are all these collected thru the entire school year? 

Little Miss Knowitall --- 9 years ago -

Old cell phones are refurbed and given to domestic abuse victims. Unless there are A LOT of phones being collected, it's not worth the effort to send in (other than benefitting the domestic abuse victim.) Oldest's scout troop did it for a while, but like I said, there's not much of a payoff for the collector of the phones.

I haven't heard about collecting broken laptops. Maybe they're fixed/upgraded and donated to schools? 

EL EM --- 9 years ago -

I will, Vicky. They haven't sent out any more information yet, but I'll get back to you as soon as I hear something. Lids for kids is a program by the Red Cross Pharmacy. It's a token you get with your medicine worth .25 for schools. It might be a local thing. They collect everything throughout the year. I probably should tell you, since I'm more of a former CPU poster, that I live in Missouri.

We are doing:

Band cards
Pizza, cookie dough and cheesecakes
Friends and Family sponsorships
Car Wash Sponsorship

and will soon be doing


I love that the cookie dough this year is the break and bake. No scooping. You just break of the nuggets and bake them.

I wouldn't mind doing the trash bags.

My friend is in charge of fundraising at her child's school, and I have to admit- they actually seem nifty!

They even had a thing with one of yearly football college bowl games, where a large chunk of the ticket sell went back to the school. (of course not every town/city is close enough to a football stadium to do anything of the sort)
