STEM PTSA Fundraiser for Water Coolers
The STEM PTSA would like to purchase water coolers, installing them at each of the current “water stations”, throughout the school. Most of our students currently carry water bottles with them but have difficulties refilling them during the day. Not only will this system allow students to refill those bottles, but it will also have a meter that will represent the number of plastic bottles the school has saved from the area landfills.
We do not want the students involved in any direct fundraising for this event and instead we are asking for families to consider a donation directly to the cause. Please consider a cash donation to the PTSA, and make sure to ask your employer if they also would be willing to do the same.
Our goal is to raise $7,000 for 5 water coolers by November 10, 2017.
To make this as smooth as possible please:
· Make your checks payable to “STEM PTSA”
· Put “water cooler” on the memo line.
· Place the check in an envelope with your student’s name and home room teacher’s name.
· HAVE YOUR STUDENTS DROP OFF THE DONATIONS AT THE FRONT OFFICE
· We will use these envelopes to get a receipt to you via your student’s home room teacher.
100% of the money raised stays with the school and your contribution may be tax deductible, consult your tax accountant. Thank you in advance!
