VVIS kicks off “Pennies for Patients” fundraiser

                                     

The VV Intermediate school would like to invite everyone to participate in our annual fundraising event “Pennies for Patients” or as the students refer to it, “Pasta for Pennies”.  The fundraising campaign will run from February 5th to February 23rd.  Last year was a record breaking year with just over $3,700 raised in support of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  We were so proud of that amount and we feel we can keep improving!  We would like to push our kindness to its limits and try for a goal of $4,700.  Participation in this campaign is easy, just collect spare change; clean out the car, check pockets on laundry day, or get under those couch cushions.  Donations can be made in cash or check sent to your student’s homeroom or credit card online.  (click here to be taken to the online link).

During the three week duration of our fundraising we would like to also offer chances to win the many donations from our surrounding businesses, both big and small.  There will be raffle items displayed in the Intermediate Office where you can view and buy your tickets.  (Raffle baskets pictured above and on the district Facebook site) Tickets are $1.00 each or 6 for $5.  Please send any money for raffle tickets attn:  Melissa Feltz, including money and marked with your name, phone number, students homeroom teacher and what item the ticket goes to and we will set it up for you.

We have included a link to our fundraiser kick off letter and a calendar so you can be aware of the many events that will be going on at Valley View Intermediate during this campaign.  Thank you to our wonderful Valley View community of family, friends, and neighbors for you support for this fundraising effort.  Your contributions are greatly appreciated!
