WILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington Middle School PAC is taking a different approach to fundraiser. Rather than sell anything or hold various fundraisers throughout the school year, the PAC is asking parents to make an online donation upfront.
The PAC recently sent out the following message about their 3rd Annual Direct Donation Drive:
The 2017-2018 Middle School PAC DIRECT DONATION DRIVE is here!
Based on the success of the Direct Donation last year, our goal is to fund the PAC budget with 100% family participation this year. We can promise you, you WILL NOT be solicited with catalogs.
Some PAC Humor:
This fundraiser is in lieu of sending students home with the task of selling door-to-door, collecting money, and delivering goods.
Please help us avoid that by supporting our PAC with your donation, and helping us achieve our goals to support our students and faculty. Thank you in advance.
__$15 I do not want to bake, so her is the money I would of spent on those cupcakes. __$25 I do not want to hit up friends, family and co-workers, so here is the money I would of spent buying wrapping paper.
__$50 I do not want to walk, swim, or run in any activity that has the word “thon” in it. Here is the money I would have spent on my child’s “free” t-shirt.
__$75 I don’t want to attend any fancy balls, so here is the money I would of have spent on a new outfit.
__$100 I really wouldn’t have helped anyway, so here is $100 to forget my name.
$___ I am making this donation to express my appreciation for having nothing to buy, sell, or do except to go to https://wmspacdirectdonationdrive.mydagsite.com/ and donate!
The PAC wishes to spend approximately $100 per child per year. Please consider a donation of at least $25, $50, $75 or $100 (suggested amount) per student. By donating the most that you can, your children’s educational experience will be the best that it can be! With an increased budget, the PAC can support many wonderful programs, events and initiatives.
In addition to the school’s Enrichment programs, the increased budget will also support programs such as the Guest speakers on Bullying and Substance Abuse issues, Teacher/Classroom Resources, Technology and Teacher “Wish List” items along with special events honoring our students and teachers. PAC also will fund the Kona Ice Trucks at Field Day and Photo Booth at semi-dance along with the Annual Holiday Treat-Fest for teachers and our Teacher Appreciation Luncheon… THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING THE WMS PAC!
