St. Patrick's Day Basket Donations

Dear Parents,

We are looking for donations for our St. Patrick's Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser! Your donation can be in the form of a gift certificate, singular item or complete basket! Your items will become part of the tricky tray which is presented in tiers based on the monetary value and participants will purchase tickets and enter to win your basket.

The baskets listed below are just IDEAS! Do not feel like you need to complete a specific basket or obtain all of the suggested contents. 

Don't feel like you have to donate this basket yourself. Feel free to solicit businesses in the community. Many of them are looking for opportunities to become involved. 

To help meet our goals, we would love if every family could donate or solicit at least one basket. Donations will be accepted through March 11th!

If you have any questions please email [email protected]

Thank you for your participation!
