Company Matching Information
 
Patsy Sommer Elementary's PTA's Stuff the Boots & Silly String a Teacher is a fundraising effort which allows 100% of your donation to benefit our school and students! Rather than selling a product to receive a percentage of profits, the direct donation that you provide will save our students, parents, and volunteers countless hours of solicitation, while providing a larger benefit to our school as a whole. These funds enable us to support school-wide needs such as software and technology upgrades, classroom workbooks, innovative learning materials, special equipment, flexible seating for our classrooms, support for teachers and educational programs. The funds also support school programs such as the Reflections & Math SuperStars programs, Carnival, Multicultural events, Teacher Appreciation, and much much more!

Please complete a Donation Form with all donations, make checks payable to Sommer Elementary PTA, and write "Stuff the Boots" in the memo line. Receipts will be sent home via folders by December 1st.  You can also donate online via the PTA Store; your receipt will be sent to your email address.

Let's Stuff the Boots together!
