Bingo Donations

Bingo Night is set for March 9th and we need your help! We are looking for prize donations to help make the night a success. We love a wide variety of prizes for kids and certificates, stuffed animals, travel mugs, left over party favors, clearance items, that unused gift from Aunt Martha you'd like to regift! To add to the excitement of the event, we'd like to include a Grad Prize table for the first few winners of each game. Some higher ticket items for this table would be greatly appreciated. Many companies are happy to donate services or gift certificates. Please use the attached donation request letter and procurement form at your favorite locations. Donations need to be submitted by March 3rd.

To help with their fundraising efforts, The Outdoor Ed Fundraising Team is serving a pizza dinner and other refreshments for purchase. Please consider donating pizza money or baked goods to support their efforts in providing an amazing experience to every 5th grade student! Money can be sent to the office via kid mail in an envelope marked "Outdoor ED Fundraising" and baked goods can be delivered to the school by 3:30 pm on March 9th. If you have any questions, please contact Trilogy Jones at Thank you so much your continued support!
