Shop with Amazon often?
You can make it even easier by pasting this url:<http://www.amazon.com/?_encoding=UTF8&tag=johpareleschp-20 > into your browser and saving it as a bookmark on all your devices (computer, laptop, ipad, phone). Then every time you shop with Amazon use the bookmarked link.
Do you have a Target credit card?
If so, all you do is go online to Target's Take Charge of Education page, https://www-secure.target.com/redcard/tcoe/home, choose Johnson Park School, and Target will donate 1% of your REDcard purchases at Target. You only have to do this once. It's that simple.
Do you shop at McCaffrey's Supermarket?
If so, by simply sending in your McCaffrey's receipts, McCaffrey's will generously donate a percentage of the amount you spend to the JP PTO. Please save your McCaffrey's receipts and send them to school with your child in an envelope or Ziploc bag or drop them off over the summer! Receipts expire 60 days from the purchase date so please don't wait - send them in right away!
That's it!! Three simple, easy ways to raise money for the JP PTO in order to fund the Residency Programs our children love, enjoy, learn and benefit from!
We invite our community to shop locally at the participating stores, restaurants, and online sites listed in this flyer. Each participating business will give JP a percentage of your purchase and some stores are even hosting a raffle just for us!. Be sure to mention that you are shopping for Johnson Park and find great gifts for Mother’s Day, teachers, or graduation or for yourself!
