What is a Direct Donation Drive? Rather than having families purchase items where only a portion of the money goes to the PTA, a Direct Donation Drive is where we ask families to make monetary donation directly to the PTA. In past years, a student might sell a pie or wrapping paper for $20 and the PTA would only earn $4-5 to benefit the school. Through the Direct Donation Drive, however, 100% of the money goes to Weyanoke to fund field trips, assemblies and other important school activities.
Last year, we raised enough to pay for every class to go on a field trip, the Spelling Bee, Science Fair, and other activities. This was especially impressive since not all of our families participated. This year we are asking for every family to participate and reach out to additional family and friends so we can have an even more successful drive.
Talk with your children and come up with a list of people (grandma, friend next door, a pastor, an aunt) who care about the kids and can donate -- even if it’s just a small amount. If each of us were to receive just $10 from five people who we know, love, and trust, we would raise over $20,000! Just a little bit from each of us will go a long way, and we could do even more for our students, such as providing after school clubs for FREE or more field trips which the kids really enjoy and appreciate! The donation drive goes from October 17 to November 17. We have given students and classes the opportunity earn to prizes based on donations raised. The kids will be encouraged daily at school during the remainder of the month of September. All donations are tax deductible.
