The holiday season is upon us, and since this is prime shopping season, we thought we’d provide a round-up of ways you can shop AND raise funds for Clifford at the same time! Here’s a handy reference for you — after all, we know how hectic things can get this time of year!
GROCERIES – For those holiday meals
eScrip for Groceries – as you plan your holiday gatherings, don’t forget these simple ways to raise money for Clifford. Make sure to register for eScrip (Non-profit: Clifford School, ID: 118392687). The following are a few (of many) grocers that will donate a percentage of your purchase back to Clifford.
- Raley’s and Nob Hill Super Markets
- Lucky S.H.A.R.E.S.
Speaking of shopping for groceries, please save your box tops and turn them in!
RETAIL – For deals and gift shopping
Whether you’re shopping on Amazon for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, or buying gifts for all your family and friends, be sure to go through the Amazon Smile link and choose Clifford School as your organization.
Another reason to register with eScrip–hundreds of your favorite retailers are committed to giving dollars back to Clifford! A portion of your purchases from the most popular department stores and brands will be donated to our school, so start by logging into the eScrip Online Mall to shop your favorite stores.
The Honey Bear Trees Fundraiser Program allows our school to earn 15% (shop at one of the 3 HBT lots: Redwood City, San Carlos and San Mateo). When you purchase a tree or wreath from HBT, be sure to mention Clifford School.
DO GOOD – Give back to the community
The Clifford School Government is partnering with One Warm Coat to collect clean, new OR gently used coats. Donate your extra coats and turn them into your student’s teacher starting November 30, 2015 to December 11, 2015.
We have a mighty, thriving school community, and the PTO-funded programs are a big part of that. Some of the wonderful programs we support are: PE, Marine Science Institute programs, Art in Action, class supplies, school play, community events and dances, 8th grade graduation, books, and technology.
Please consider providing a tax-deductible donation. If your employer has a charitable match program, utilize it to increase giving even more!
