Each spring the Garfield PTSA hosts a Community Celebration & Auction to raise funds for our school. This fundraiser is critical to the PTSA’s budget, yielding nearly 40% of the funds in a typical year. Because of the pandemic’s devastating impact on the school’s budget, and on the budget of many Garfield families, and on a pivot to remote learning that has required additional technology and software, the need for school support from the PTSA has only grown during the pandemic, not diminished.
While an in-person event is impossible, we hope to hold a virtual event later this spring that will bring our community together while raising money for our school. To pull this off we need a committee of volunteers to help with all aspects of such an event – from brainstorming ideas to procurement to utilizing auction software – in coordination with the PTSA leads. Can you help? If yes, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you very much for your consideration.
Many hands make light work!
