Feed the Panther



The “Feed the Panther” donation drive is a simple and effective fundraiser that allows the PWE PTA to provide additional programs and items for our children that RISD and state budgets do not cover. This straight donation drive eliminates the need for door-to-door selling of items where only a small percentage of the money goes to the PTA. Your contribution is tax deductible and 100% goes to the PTA to benefit our children and school!


The PTA currently spends at least $150.00 per child on the following:
  • COVID-19 related expenses including those attributed to virtual learning,
  • Education Enrichment Programs (e.g., Planetarium visit and the Understanding Differences program),
  • Field Trips (e.g., the Zoo, Arboretum, Collin County Adventure Camp),
  • Buddy Fun Day,
  • Carnival,
  • Reflections,
  • Red Ribbon Week,
  • International Literacy Night,
  • Reading programs,
  • Library books,
  • Classroom, art and music supplies,
  • School beautification, 
  • Technology and much more.
We appreciate donations of any amount and are striving for 100% family participation.

This year we plan (and hope!) to bring back the uber successful AUCTION PARTY in the Spring, as well as our standard annual online auction, and certain levels of Feed the Panther donations will get you special privileges and freebies at the party.  Tickets to the event will be at least $75.00 per person.
