First, a great big thank you to everyone who has participated in the last two Community Change Days of Giving campaigns. We raised nearly $1,000 for the MCPASD Education Foundation.
Community Change is offering another special opportunity today and Friday, when 100 percent of all orders placed with Community Change up to $10 in value go directly back to the Education Foundation. Just visit the Community Change website, shop for the gift cards or coupons you want and identify the MCPASD Education Foundation as the organization you wish to support at checkout.
If you spend more than $10, don't worry because the Education Foundation will still get 20 percent of what you spend above that.
Once again every dollar raised through this promotion will be used for teacher grants this fall. We handed out more than $3,200 in grants in May.
This is the final Community Change Days of Giving program we will participate in until the fall so please help if you can.
What is Community Change? It is a local organization that provides funds for charitable organizations. Gift cards are available online at a discounted rate and the organization that you designate typically receives 20 percent of your total purchase. Their most popular gift card is a restaurant package, but they also have coupons for retail stores, services, fitness and more.
