Getting stolen $ to Lemon Elemenary

$2,745 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 43 people in 20 months
This page has been setup to help offset the financial loss to Lemon Avenue Elementary theft that occurred after the main PTA Halloween Fundraising event.  Money was found to be missing at an  estimated $3000 that was secured in the office after the tired volunteers left for the weekend.

The school had an enormous turnout with well over 300 PTA family signups - a huge increase from previous years.  However, after all was said and done, the numbers didn't add up and the loss is only an approximation based on previous years.  It might have been more.

I am grateful for dontations thus far and have faith the community will help to minimize the financial loss for the school.  This is a great school with many tenured teachers, an active Garden and many other events. 

Who doesn't like to earn a Pajama Day, a Super Hero Day, and great Book Sales?  These kids are most respectful and deserve these activities.

I hope you can find it in your hearts to donate anything possible to make up for this loss.  If you find me somewhere or at the Carnival next year, I'll buy you some of the delicious corn on the cob, minnestrone soup or what other delicious concoctions the Food team will come up with.

All money will go back to the PTA so the children can continue with regular activities and their parents not having  to shell out extra for other activities that continue to build these kids.

Thank you,
Jason

Ok,

I said the last update was the last but we are so close to our goal. If you can find a way to donate a few bucks to make up for the missing Carnival money, it would be very much appreciated.

Paypal is adding an addition 1% for charities through the end of this month. I thank all that have donated to this so far and look forward to handing the money around New Years.

Happy Holidays!

One final update -

I learned that today is #GivingTuesday. Maybe we can make one final push to meet the goal for these great kids.

The story was covered by local news stations and I'm sharing the links.

Anything helps.

I hope everyone had a great Turkey Day and spent time with loved ones. The overwhelming support leaves me to have confidence this campaign can meet the goal.

If you can't donate, maybe share with your Facebook or Twitter friends. Thank you all for your generosity thus far.

I hope you aren't too tired from Black Friday. Cyber Monday is up next!

Take Care,

Jason
