Other Ways to Support Our School

Here are other ways to support PAS:

    • Box Tops: Clip the Box Tops for Education coupons from your household products and send into school in the Pony envelope.  Last year we earned $1,000 for recess equipment.
      • For 2018-2019, our goal is for each family to submit 50 Box Tops each month. Proceeds will benefit the after-school Clubs program!
    • Remember PAS during tax season with a tax-deductible donation.
    • Ask your employer if they match gifts employees make to charitable donations.
    • Remember to include family members. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, and other family members can buy PAS gear, collect Box Tops, shop on Amazon Smile, and volunteer in the school.
    • Amazon Smile: If you shop on Amazon, bookmark instead, and choose Home and School Association of Penn Alexander School as your charity. A percentage of every purchase goes to PAS. Ask friends and family to use this too.
