Feed the Panther

 

The “Feed the Panther” donation drive is a simple and effective fundraiser that allows us 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!

 

The PTA currently spends at least $150.00 per child on 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 Night, reading programs, library books, classroom, art and music supplies, school beautification, technology and much more.
 
This year, due to a decrease in Title 1 funding, PWE will not be able to provide traditional family night programs (e.g., Math and Science Night and Literacy Night) or specialized tutoring without the increased support from our PWE PTA families. These services total approximately $10,000 for the year. Please consider increasing your Feed the Panther donation to help us fulfill this deficit and continue these programs and services!
 
We appreciate donations of any amount and are striving for 100% family participation.
 
This year there will be an AUCTION PARTY in the Spring (yay!!!), as well as our standard annual online auction, and certain levels of Feed the Panther donations will come with special privileges and freebies at the party.  Tickets to the event will be at least $75.00 per person. We are excited to take the PWE auction to the next level this year, so please don't forget to donate big NOW to get your extras for the gala.
