Giving Tuesday

Help raise $10,000 on Giving Tuesday! We’re gearing up for an audacious fundraising push! Can we raise $10,000 on or before December 3rd? Let’s say, “YES!”

Email Alana if you want to help drive this forward (alana.kaczmarek@gmail.com)

Grocery Cards

Buy grocery store gift cards and/or volunteer to sell grocery store gift cards!

The JSS PTO buys bulk cards at a discounted price and sells them at face value in our community. Cards are often available at school events, before or after school, and at each PTO meeting.

You may also download this order form and send it to school with your child <insert order form here>. You may also pay by check (make checks out to JSS PTO with “grocery cards” in the memo line), pay by credit card, or through PayPal.

Last year, buying groceries, alone, made $4,000 for JSS. Email Ashley Miller to buy or sell cards (ashleyandkeith@yahoo.com)
