Fundraising
  • It can be overwhelming to be faced with a steady stream of requests for money and donations. We all have families of our own and know budgets can be tight. We're constantly looking for ways to integrate opportunities with our daily lives and take advantage of offers to earn funds at little or no cost to our West Pottsgrove community.

    • Invite extended family, friends, even coworkers and colleagues to participate. Anyone can help support West Pottsgrove through the opportunities below.

    • Get in the habit of collecting and submitting. Together, we can earn a lot of money with very little effort!

    • Once you're set up with programs like A+ Rewards or AmazonSmile, the rewards earn themselves every time you shop.

    What do we do with this money?  In addition to purchasing much-needed items for the school and classrooms like rugs, books and supplies, and playground equipment, we use it to BRING THE FUN for the students and families at West through as many free and low-cost events as we can.

     Tyson Project A+

    Participation in the Tyson Project A+™ program is a simple way for West Pottsgrove to earn extra cash. Each label is worth $.24, and you can find labels on dozens of products. Clip and save the labels from these products and turn them into the school. The more labels we collect, the more money we can earn! 

    Tip: Collect the labels and store them with your Box Tops.  Turn them all in at once—we'll sort them out!


     Redner's Save-a-Tape

    Use your Save-A-Tape card every time you shop at Redner's to earn money for West.  It doesn't cost you anything, and won't affect your gas/in-store credits. (All receipts we turn in must be designated as a Save-A-Tape receipt.) Collect your receipts, and don't forget to ask family and friends to save theirs.  Turn them in at any time, and we'll take care of the rest!

    If you don't have a card, stop by any store office or Customer Service desk.

    Tip: Your regular grocery shopping can add up fast.  For example, if 50 West families spent an average of $75.99 per week at Redner’s Warehouse Markets, we could earn up to $1,950 in one year!
