LAUNDRY SOAP FUNDRAISER
The Laundry Soap/Dish Soap/Trash Bag Fundraiser (company name is Profitable Solutions) is running thru March 2nd. Forms were handed out to all students last week. The majority of funds (approx 75%) raised by each student/family from this fundraiser go directly to your student's individual band account (and by emailing email@example.com these funds may be applied toward the band expenses of your choice, including the band trip, fees, etc). The product delivery date will be no later than Friday March 20th (the company is closed March 21-29th).
Did you know we can earn free money just by grocery shopping? Go to www.kroger.com/account/enrollCommunityRewardsNow/ and add Westfield Band Boosters Association (organization number: 11175) to your Kroger Plus Card. This does NOT take away from your fuel points and doesn't cost a thing. Once you link WBBA to your Kroger Plus Card, we earn money every time you shop at Kroger. If you have any questions, please contact Lonnie Phares at firstname.lastname@example.org.
