The Fall Fundraiser is here and it rocks!
We are very excited to be participating with a local company called “Close Buy” for a New England-made Fall Fundraiser. The have a great catalog full of local, high quality, healthy delicious, beautiful and useful products that people actually WANT! Check it out here : Catalog
Close Buy was started by a local Mom in Portland, Maine who was tired of buying wrapping paper she didn’t want. “I thought, I want to support his school, but don’t really want any of this stuff,” she recalls. Not wanting to purchase “crap” any longer or feel the need to hawk it on to friends and relatives she went to local vendors and artists and created Close Buy.
It has been met with amazing success, and no wonder! The catalog is brimming with great products you desire and with your purchase you support not just your school, but local vendors. Consider your holiday shopping done! Another great benefit from this fundraiser is how easy it is for friends and relatives that live far away to participate, they can order online and have their items shipped directly to them.
When is my order due?
Catalog orders are due back to school by Monday, September 23rd.
Online Orders must be submitted by Thursday, October 10th.
When will I get my stuff?
Orders should be delivered to the school no later than the first week in December. This is the perfect opportunity to do your HOLIDAY SHOPPING and support our schools! We will notify you when your order is ready to be picked up at your child’s school. Orders will not be sent home with kids. Families may also opt to have their orders shipped directly to their homes for an additional shipping charge. Don’t forget to ask your out-off-state family for their support too!
How can I support the PTA monetarily without buying something?
The PTA gladly accepts donations of any size at any time! Feel free to send a check with your student made out to “Barrington PTA”. The benefit of making a monetary contribution is that 100% of your donation supports PTA sponsored programs.
What else do I need to know?
PRIZES! A pizza party will be awarded to the classroom in each school (BES and ECLC) with the highest percentage pf sales (total sales/class size). The teacher of the winning class will receive a $25 Staples gift card.
For catalog orders, please male checks payable to “Barrington PTA”.
For on-line orders, customers will need to provide the school name , teacher’s name and student’s name . This will allow on-line orders to be included in the calculation for the classroom prize. Please be sure to provide these details to your friends, family and neighbors to make their online ordering a success!
Volunteers are vital! Help will be needed when the orders are delivered and/or picked up! Please email BarringtonNHPTA@gmail.com if you would like to help or if you have any questions.
