KES IN THE NEWS!!!
The GKES PTO is looking for volunteers to help with the Box Top and Labels for Education programs. We need someone to lead the committee and members to help participate in supporting, counting, cutting and preparing the Box Tops and labels for education. We ask teachers twice a year for submission (one in the fall and one in the spring). We need help for the next spring collection. Please contact Hector Lopez at email@example.com if you are interested and please note if you would like to be the committee chair. In the fall submission for Box Tops we earned approximately $1800. This is a great opportunity to provide fundraising support for our kids without having to donate any money. Thanks in advance for your support.
Are you a go-getter? Are you someone who likes to interact with others? Are you someone who enjoys supporting our kids? If so, the GKES PTO has an excellent opportunity available. We are in need of a Donations Chair (and a team of volunteers to support the Donations Chair). A lot of the activities occur in support of the Fall Festival but this is also a valuable source of support for PTO all year long. Some activities include:
1. Coordinate and lead a team of volunteers to work on solicitation of donations
2. Solicit donations from local businesses, companies where the GKES parents work and businesses outside of the our community.
a. Call all businesses solicited after a donation letter has been mailed
b. Confirm letter was received. If not, send them one. If yes, inquire if interested in donating. Make arrangements to pick up or receive by mail.
c. Ensure all follow up on donations is executed
d. Record received donations, including business/donor name, contact name, address, categorization, description and value information.
e. Generate thank you letter to be mailed; mail thank you letters to all donators
If you are interested in either the Donations Chair, being part of the team, or have something to donate please contact Hector Lopez at firstname.lastname@example.org.
