GROCERY GIFT CARD FUNDRAISER 2013-2014
Our Grocery Gift Card Fundraiser last year was very successful, so we decided to continue using it as a fundraiser for the 2013/2014 school year. We use this fundraiser to raise money for a new school playground, and although we have collected a fair amount, we still have a way to go to reach our fundraising goal.
If you would like additional information on this fundraiser or need an order form, please click on the links below.
Thank you for continuing to support our fundraising initiatives.
Our next Order Deadline is Thursday, December 5, 2013.
