The PGO holds two fundraisers a year:
Passive Fundraisers: easy ways to help raise money for Wildwood (earn money while you shop!)
Atkins Farms Country Market
Use your Atkins Wildwood School Shoppers Card or quote Customer #84 when you shop at Atkins or Savory Suppers, to credit Wildwood with a percentage of your purchases. Get one card for you, your neighbors and family. If you need a card, pick one up from the PGO mailbox (green business cards in the mail bin UNDER the staff mailboxes).
Box Tops for Education
Look for the Box Tops logo on products you already have in the cupboard, cut it out and deliver your box tops to the school’s main office. For each Box Top clipped the school receives 10 cents.
Stop & Shopʼs A+ School Rewards Program
Use your Stop & Shop card and Wildwood earns a percentage! It’s never too late to sign up! However, for Wildwood to receive credit you need to re-designate Wildwood each year. Call 1-877-366-2668 or visit www.stopandshop.com/aplus. Wildwood ID # 05168. Remember, even if you registered your card last year, you must re-register this year for our school to receive credit. And, if you sign up anytime in any month during the program, ALL your purchases for that month will be counted! Please encourage your friends and relatives to designate Wildwood.
To select Wildwood as your permanent charity, go to smile.amazon.com. Click Your Account -> Your Amazon Smile -> Change Charity button. Search for “Amherst Amherst Regional Public Schools Parent Guardian Organization” -> Click Select.
Vote for us through the Florence Bank Community Choice Grant program. Each Florence Bank account holder gets one vote, and the voting runs from January 1st to December 31st each year. In February, the bank will donate $100,000 to local schools and non profit organizations. Any group with at least 50 votes will qualify for a grant! We are asking families to vote for the “Amherst Regional Public Schools Parent Guardian Organization” (ARPS PGO) to help our schools reach the 50-vote minimum needed to qualify for a grant. The ARPS PGO includes the PGOs for Crocker Farm, Wildwood, Amherst Regional Middle School, & Amherst Regional High School. Any grant awarded will be shared equally among the four PGOs. In 2017, the ARPS PGO was awarded $947 through this grant program
Online Shopping through Goodshop
Includes over 2,500 online stores, including many national retailers like Amazon, Apple, Best Buy, and LLBean. Stores will donate up to 5% or more of purchases to Wildwood.
This has the potential to be our biggest money maker if everyone participates! You register yourself for a free account and designate Wildwood Elementary to be the recipient). Then when you shop, you click on goodshop.com, and then on to your favorite store, and a 1-5% rebate will be credited to Wildwood for everything you purchase!
There is also a Goodsearch link, but we DO NOT recommend installing the toolbar, as it slows down your computer. Wildwood would only get a penny everytime you used their search engine.
Big Y Education Express
Use your Big Y Express Savings Club card and Wildwood earns points for buying much needed equipment and supplies! Just visit the Big Y customer service desk and ﬁll out a form that will link Wildwood with your card. Or go to http://www.bigy.com/EducationExpress and sign up from your computer! Whenever you use your card to purchase items designated with the “Education Express” logo, youʼll earn points for our school.
Bring textiles, soft toys, rags, shoes. Any condition as long as they are CLEAN. The box is near the side parking lot, off the driveway.
