From cool fundraising events to box tops and scrips cards, it has never been easier to support the Pony Express community! Below are our current fundraising events, as well as several other effortless ways you can start help raising funds for Pony. It doesn’t take much to make a difference! As always, we appreciate your time and support in helping our community thrive.
The Raley’s Extra Credit program donates a percentage of your total purchases to Pony Express. Simply swipe your Something Extra card, or enter your rewards ID, on the keypad at the register every time you shop at Raley’s, Bel Air, or Nob Hill Foods. The program is completely free, and family and friends can also join!
To enroll in Extra Credit, you first need to be enrolled in Raley’s Something Extra program, which gives you personalized coupons and rewards. Once enrolled in Something Extra, you can then sign up for Extra Credit.
Shop Amazon and anywhere from 4% to 10% of your purchase will go to our school! Use our unique Amazon link, which takes you directly to Amazon.com, where you can browse and shop just as you normally would. Bookmark this link and use it each time you shop at Amazon! Pass it on to your family, friends, and anyone else who would like to help Pony.
Box Tops for Education is a school fundraiser with unlimited earning potential! All you have to do is accumulate box tops from participating products and deposit them in the Box Top Can located in the front office. Our school earns $0.10 for each box top collected. If each student turns in just 40 box tops over the course of the school year, that will result in almost $1,700 for Pony! Go to the Boxtops website for a complete product listing and printable coupons.
With this program, up to 4% of your purchases at Nugget Markets will be donated back to our school. To obtain a card, fill out the request form, or leave a note to Jamie Szeto in the PTA mailbox. Register your card online, and present it to the cashier each time you shop at Nugget Markets. Multiple cards can be registered under one family member so monthly purchases earn a greater percentage.
Shoparoo is a free app for smartphones that allows everyone to raise money for Pony! Simply use the app to snap pictures of your grocery receipts to earn Roo Points, based on the purchase amount. (500 Roo Points = $1 cash donation from Shoparoo) You can also take pictures of your non-grocery receipts for entries into Shoparoo’s $1,000 and $15,000 sweepstakes.
Our school has teamed up with EWASTE4GOOD, a company that provides free E-waste pickup from your home or business! Simply go to their website and submit the online form. Be sure to type “Pony Express PTA” as the organization you are donating to. See their website for a list of accepted items. A representative will contact you to schedule your pickup date. It’s a great way to properly dispose of E-waste AND help earn money for our school at the same time!
