Additional Fundraising Information
Direct Appeal Campaign
Several years ago, PTA members expressed a desire to make a monetary contribution as a simple way to directly support the Burr PTA. We’ve listened and two years ago started a Direct Appeal Campaign. What makes the Direct Appeal Campaign so unique is that 100% of each donation goes directly to Burr and all donations are tax deductible. If you would like to make a contribution toward your child’s share of Burr’s PTA programs, please click here for more information. Thank you for your continued support. Contact: Suzanne La Bella.
Stop & Shop A+ Program
From October, 2017 through March, 2018, Burr families will have the opportunity to earn cash for the Burr PTA through Stop & Shop A+ School Rewards Program. Last year, the Burr PTA received over $1,500 through this program! All you have to do to register online is go to www.stopandshop.com/aplus and select Register Your Card. After you register your card, each shopping trip at Stop & Shop using your card earns CASH for our school. Note: If you registered your card last year, you DO NOT need to re-register this year. You can visit the website to verify correct school assignment. Also, don’t forget to encourage your friends and relatives to do the same. It could mean more cash for our school this year!
Box Tops for Education
Look for the Box Tops logo on hundreds of products and in almost every aisle of the grocery store. All you need to do is clip and send them in to our school’s Box Top coordinator (Simply label envelope or baggie "Box Tops" and hand in to classroom teacher. The collection bin is located near the front office). Every Box Top equals easy money for our school! Box Tops for Education is not just a box top clipping program that earns money for Burr. Once you register, you can shop online, by linking through their website, to many retailers that you already frequent. Just visit boxtops4education.com for more information. Keep clipping!
