Wilmington Middle School PAC Announces 2020-2021 Direct Donation Drive

Below is an announcement from the Wilmington Middle School PAC:

WILMINGTON, MA — The 2020-2021 Middle School PAC DIRECT DONATION DRIVE is here! Based on the success of the Direct Donation Drive in past years, our goal is to fund the PAC budget with 100% family participation this year.

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 catalog selling by supporting our PAC with your one time donation, and helping us achieve our goals to support our students and faculty.  We call it our ONE AND DONE Drive…one donation and your are done for the year! Thank you in advance.

Some PAC Humor:

__$15    I do not want to bake, so here is the money I would have spent on those cupcakes.
__$25    I do not want to hit up friends, family and coworkers, so here is the money I would have 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 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://www.depositagift.com/preview/wmsdirectdonationdrive20202021 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 supports 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 topics such as Bullying, Vaping and Substance Abuse issues, Teacher/Classroom Resources, Technology and Teacher “Wish List” items, scholarships, leadership programs  along with special events honoring our students and teachers. PAC also will fund the Italian ices for the annual Field Day events, the 6th grade orientation/scavenger hunt ice cream social, 8th grade Spring Fling items along with the Annual Holiday Treat-Fest and our Teacher Appreciation Luncheon for the MS teachers.

We hope you will realize the great benefit the PAC is for your child (children) and you will join PAC us at the next PAC meeting.

If you would like to meet new parents, learn about the MS especially if you are new incoming 6th grade parent, check out the WMS PAC website for a schedule of dates/times of our next PAC meeting. The PAC is always looking for new members!  We would love to see you at our next meeting!

We can do it without you, the parents and your support, so please consider making a monetary donation today!
