Amazon Smile is now IN the Android Amazon App!

Amazon has set up a way for non-profits to earn funds from their supporters’ purchases.

As a 501(c)3 organization, Neely’s PTO is one of the recipients of their generosity. Using Amazon Smile is so easy!

The one catch to using Amazon Smile before has been that purchases had to be made through smile.amazon.com.

Now you can use the Amazon app to support Amazon Smile on Android devices!

Learn how to set up the app here.

Once you have turned it on, sign in as usual and select the organization you would like your funds to support. You only have to do this once. The PTO is listed as Neely Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization.

Amazon Smile does NOT apply to purchases made on www.amazon.com, or if you have NOT set up the app, so make sure every purchase you make is done at smile.amazon.com or through your Android Amazon app.


Not on Android? An iOS app will be released soon. Until then, shop in the app, add the items to your cart, then go to smile.amazon.com on Safari or Chrome and checkout. All of your information will show up in the app like normal.

WE NEED YOUR HELP

Teachers are in need of replacement supplies for their classrooms.

We’ve developed a theory that the children must be eating the pencils with how often they disappear at school. Everything is used so much faster than expected, which leaves teachers rationing supplies towards the end of the year. You can help them avoid this with just a few minutes or dollars.

It’s time to go shopping or dig through the cupboards at home and send in those supplies that you didn’t need for that school project anyway.

We promise no teacher has turned down a partly used glue stick or opened container of Clorox Wipes. New supplies will make them feel even more appreciated!

Here is what is needed most:

  • Dry Erase Markers
  • Reams of Paper
  • Glue Sticks
  • Pencils
  • Cleaning Wipes
  • Crayons
  • Highlighters
  • Tissues
  • Sharpies

Teachers have submitted requests detailing what they need in their classrooms so you can shop for your child’s class  to be part of the contest or just send stuff from the list above to the front office.

Panera Bread Restaurant Night

Dinner has a purpose! Join us on December 10th from 4-8pm at the Val Vista and Baseline location to avoid cooking and support Neely.

Panera Bread (or for those of you who’ve been in the valley for awhile, Paradise Bakery) specializes in healthy, tasty salads, sandwiches, soups, and bakery items. All purchases for the night (except gift cards) will count toward our 20% return. You can order ahead online with the code PRFUND or stop by and place a take-out order or dine in. 

Their menu is online. If you’ve seen the restaurant and were curious about their food, now is your chance to try it out and you get to raise money for our school!

This is an easy way to help Neely and have a healthy dinner out!

See you there!

Loyalty Items Fundraiser

Orders Due November 13

 

Print an Order Form

Every year, we see these flyers for Harkins, but maybe you’re not quite sure what these items are or why our school is offering them.

 

Harkins sells many things besides movie tickets and they partner with schools and non-profits to raise funds.

 

One of the most popular items is their refillable souvenir cup. Purchase the cup for $6.75 and you can get $2.00 refills (first one is even free!) for all of 2020. If you purchase their summer movie tickets, this is a great way to get a cheap drink to stay cool!

 

While you’re at the theater, you can redeem your Popcorn Voucher. Each punch is good for a medium popcorn. There are 36 punches on each card – an average of 3 visits a month! Limit of one punch per visit. It’s only $30. 

 

Lastly, if you can’t decide what to get that hard-to-shop-for person, we have $25 gift cards. Who doesn’t love movies? 

 

What does all this have to do with fundraising? Neely purchases these items at discount and sells them for regular price. You aren’t paying any more than you would in the theater, BUT Neely’s PTO gets some much needed cash to help our school continue to be awesome!

 

Orders are accepted by paper form only and must be turned in by November 13th. We will deliver the vouchers for your purchased items during the week of December 9th so you can have time to get them to your family and friends for the holidays.
