Even though our trip to Vegas is complete, there are still 5 important ways to help push us to the finish line over our $150,000 milestone and create more opportunity for Alki Elementary kids, our teachers and the support staff.
1 – Purchase one of a kind buy-in parties or specialty items in the online catalog before they’re gone at http://tinyurl.com/alki2019. Fun fact: Over $10,000 has been raised from online sales.
2 – Shop small and find a special ornament or kid pic (or both!) on display in the Alki office for only $20 each and take home special holiday treasures. Checks can be dropped in the Alki PTA mailbox or payment can be made online by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Fun fact: Each ornament is hand painted by Alki kids and multiple kid prints can be ordered as gifts.
3 – Make an online donation through the Direct Give portal and encourage your friends and family to donate to the cause at https://tinyurl.com/Alki2019. Fun fact: Hammer & Hand Home Builders donated $2,000 to our auction fundraising because of a direct ask!
4 – Turn in your receipts to employers for matching funds. Fun fact: over $5,000 is coming to Alki through employee matching!
5 – Join us at the Dec. 4th PTA Meeting and vote your approval to dedicate important dollars to funding gaps. (Not so) Fun fact: Currently, Alki Elementary only receives funding to allocate a school nurse 1.5 days a week.
