PTA Fall Fundraiser Final Countdown

Urgent Fundraiser Update!!
Thank You all for the wonderful response to our Fall Fundraiser!! We are almost to our goal! (As of August 26th, our SMS students have raised $23,000 and that puts us at 90% of our goal!!) We can still accept any late orders through Friday, September 2nd, so if you have any more sales, please turn them in this week. Way to go Spartans!

Your support of the Salem PTA enables us to provide supplies, grants and professional development. The PTA also helps bring cultural arts and technology to the students.

If you have any questions about this fundraiser please contact Marie Guinan at megmdp05@gmail.com

Question: Who do I make the check out to?

Answer: If you are buying products or making a donation all checks should be made out to SMS-PTA. (This is an abbreviation for Salem Middle School PTA) NOT Cherrydale.

Question: Where do I show donations made on the order form?

Answer: Group all donations together and put a separate note on them denoting they are donations. Return with order form.

Question: What equals one unit?

Answer: One unit is either one item purchased OR a $10 donation to the PTA. Any combination of items purchased or $10 donations will work for the prizes. i.e. If you purchase two items from the catalog and make one $10 donation that is three units and you are qualified for the main event.

If you have any more questions, please contact Marie Guinan at megmdp05@gmail.com and we will be happy to answer them.
