Spring Branch Education Foundation
In support of the Spring Branch Education Foundation (SBEF) gala on November 21st, the Frostwood PTA will be donating a basket for the silent auction. The theme of our basket will be “Backyard Campfire.” The PTA does not have a budget for the basket, so we are asking for your help!
- Want an easy way to help? We have set up an Amazon “Wish List” of items to create this package. You may search for a registry (just enter “Frostwood” in the search field) or use this Amazon link and then choose anything you would like! You may ship to yourself and we can arrange to pick up your donation, or you may ship it to Suzanne Farrow. Amazon Prime members…we have chosen Prime eligible items so you can have free shipping too! Plus, Frostwood is now a beneficiary through Amazon Smile! If you visit smile.amazon.com and choose “Texas PTA Congress Frostwood Elementary PTA” as your beneficiary, the PTA will receive a percentage back of your purchase. It’s a win-win!
- Don’t see something you want on the wish list and you have other ideas? You may purchase anything with a “Backyard Campfire” theme on Amazon or anywhere else you would like. We can arrange to pick up your item(s) whenever you are ready.
- Don’t want to bother shopping? We will take cash donations too! Please consider donating $10 or an amount you feel is appropriate and we will use these funds to purchase items to complete our basket. Please make your checks out to “Frostwood PTA” and you may send it to school in an envelope marked “PTA SBEF Basket Donation.”
SBEF’s mission is to enhance the quality of education for every student in SBISD, so your donation and the funds raised by our silent auction basket will have a direct impact on our district. Frostwood was awarded a $5,000 SBEF grant to fund our Urban Harvest education program this year, and SBEF funds some field trips and other programs enjoyed by all the children in SBISD. Our children have benefited directly, but SBEF’s efforts have funded scholarships for graduating seniors, arts education programs, teacher and staff development, mentoring, and other initiatives that have supported all the children in SBISD each year. Thank you in advance for your consideration and generosity!
Note: The deadline for both item and monetary donations is September 30. All donations are tax deductible.
