Meeting our fundraising goals is vital to our organization but it's not the only way you can help. Time is money too! Help save GMSPA both by checking out our in-kind opportunities.

In-Kind Donations 
If you think you could help us locate some neat prizes for our events and fundraising efforts, we'd love to hear from you!  Perhaps you work at a restaurant and your restaurant would be willing to donate a gift certificate we could give away?  Perhaps you own a beach rental and you would be willing to donate a weekend that we could give away? A signed baseball card? A duplicate iPod you received a as gift? A mani-pedi gift certificate or even a discount at your place of business? You get the picture. We will be using our 501(c)3 non-profit status to solicit donations this year, but with 700 families at our fingertips, we thought we'd start with you!  Please be in touch if you can help with this initiative. gmspafamilies@gmail.com
Birthday Books 
Most libraries need new books and Mitchell is no exception!  Birthday Books is a program introduced last year by GMSPA with the goal of accumulating some new books for the children. If you would like to particpate, here is how it works:
On behalf of your child on their birthday, you donate a new copy of their favorite age appropriate book to the Mitchell Library. GMSPA will put a special sticker inside the cover of the book that reads: 
Happy 6th Birthday Jessica Johnson!
September 15, 2011
The Librarian catalogs the book and the book is held at the circulation desk until your child checks it out of the library. The birthday child is the first child to check out the donated birthday book!  Ideally, families would do this once per year, for the four years your child attends Mitchell, so that we are able to honor your child's special day and add a diversity of books to our school's collection. Additionally, the book will be at Mitchell forever in their honor!
If you would like to participate in this program, please print THIS FORM form and tuck it inside the new book for donation. Send the book to school in your child's back pack and the teacher will send it to the GMSPA office. Please allow at least two weeks for processing of the new book. Families are encouraged to send the book into school as far in advance of the birthday as possible.
