Kids are back in school. School forms need to be completed, Back to School Night is coming up. Everyone is gung ho about the new school year. It is also a new year for the Home and School Association/PTA. HSAs offer a unique opportunity to parents to get involved in the extra curricular activities offered by the schools. This cannot happen without volunteer parents. So a simple resolve to volunteer 2 hours of your time to any activity in your child's school can be tremendous. Join a committee that is closest to your heart and take part. Leo Goes Grr is doing its part this year by offering a fundraiser to schools interested in conducting Grreen Fundraisers. our highlights are:
"Buy Locally Made in America Products" result Take Care of Small to Mid-Size Businesses in America.
"Buy products made from materials that are safe for our children".
"Buy products made from recycled materials which would otherwise get discarded and end up in our landfills"
"Buy products made from properly managed resources to minimize impacts to the environment".
Fundraisers are great but Grreen Fundraisers are even better because they help raise money "with a sense of pride for American businesses and Respect for healthy living and the environment".
