In order to support the various programs and activities HSA sponsors throughout the school year, it is necessary to have fundraisers. Volunteers are always needed to organize sales, distribute order forms and to distribute orders once they are received. If you are interested in helping with any of the fundraisers described or would like more information about them, please contact a HSA officer.
RUN FOR EDUCATION
Our most successful fundraiser to date is the RUN for Education. In September, registration begins on thegetmovincrew.com
. You will then be able to share your child's link with family and friends to ask for donations supporting your child in their run. Hallowell receives 100% of the proceeds. In our first two years over $30,000 was raised. Students participate in a walk/run outside on the playground in the early fall.
KIDS STUFF/SAVE AROUND BOOKS
The Kidstuff book sale is done in early fall. The books are similar to the Entertainment Books which contain coupons for various restaurants and businesses. The Kidstuff book discounts are geared toward child related stores, family fun activities and family friendly restaurants. The school receives a 50% of the sales.
"Box Tops" can be found on many household foods and items you regularly purchase. Forms will be sent home electronically on a monthly basis that you can print out and adhere your box tops to. Hallowell receives $.10 for every box top we receive. We raised over $1000 last year. Look on the Box Top website for more information: www.boxtops4education.com
Throughout the year, we have spirit nights at places such as Dairy Queen, Ritas, Chick Fil A and MaGerks. During specific hours of the evening, the restaurant donates a percentage of the sales to the school. Sometimes you need to present a flyer, other times you need to mention Hallowell when you pay. Each establishment is different so look for more information on the flyers when they are emailed in the weekly happenings.
