As Parents, relatives, and friends of the Lawton Community, you might not be sure of where and how you can donate. Listed below are some of the ways that you or someone you know can donate or contribute to The Lawton PTA. Your donations are appreciated and make a huge impact in the lives of our children! Some of the ways your donations make a difference can be found here. While monetary donations are of course always welcome, we love when community members can offer their time and skills to help out with our events, fundraisers, and our day to day running of our organization as well. Remember, without the PTA, our students wouldn't have many of the programs, technology, and supplies that they are privileged to today.
WAYS THAT YOU CAN DONATE:
iPledge- The first month of school we host our annual iPledge Fundraiser. A flyer is sent home explaining the contribution amounts along with Thank You gifts. We strive for 100% participation but we appreciate any donation you can make no matter how big or small. You can click the Paypal Donate button right below this as well if you do not want to use the form, Just please indicate somewhere that this is for ipledge, or follow by sendingan email to email@example.com.
Paypal- Click on our Paypal Donation Button here and set up a donation amount of your choice any time you choose.
Box Tops for Education/Labels for Education- Look for Box Tops on Participating products and then turn them into the PTA, Box Tops for Education labels give our school $.10 per label, which might not seem like a lot, however every label counts and can earn hundreds and potentially thousands for our school! We send these labels in twice a year, once in October and once in March. Labels for Education labels earn us items for the classrooms and such that the PTA can choose from a specific catalogue.
Here is what the labels look like:
Schoola- Schoola is an online consignment shop that families can donate their gently used, clean, unwanted clothing items to and they will place qualified items in their online store (under our school's name) and 40% of the profits will be returned back to our school. In just about a year, our school has already made about $3,000 using this program. It is a win-win for everyone, you get to donate unwanted items, your children do not have to go out and try to sell something to strangers, and the school gets money back!! We have 2 donations set up a year, however you can request a bag to send in at any time using this link: https://www.schoola.com/schools/lawton-alternative-school-san-francisco-ca.
