Fundraisers

Direct Donation Fundraiser

 
The Mosby Woods PTA’s first fundraiser for the 2017-2018 school year is the 2nd Annual Direct Donation Campaign. To avoid doing typical product-based fundraisers, we are once again asking families and friends of Mosby Woods for direct donations. This way, 100% of the money goes to support Mosby Woods PTA initiatives and 100% of your donation is tax deductible! Our goal for the 2016-2017 school year was $20,000. We were able to raise approximately $9700 during the first few months of the school year. Although we fell short of our goal, we were still able to donate a new kiln to the art department, 5 new xylophones to the music department, 20 new iPads, provide numerous assemblies, support field trips, and give back to our amazing teachers during teacher appreciation week.

But we would like to be able to do more! This year, our goal is to reach the $20,000 mark. If every student donated $25, we would exceed our goal! While we certainly appreciate any and all donations –large and small –donations made at the beginning of the school year are especially beneficial as we work to establish our annual budget.where 100% of the money raised goes to support Mosby Woods programs.
 
Dates of Fundraiser: August 25 - November 3
 
The donation form from the Wednesday folder can be sent back to school via your student's teacher.  You can also download the form below or donate online.
 
Mosby Woods is a 501(c)(3) organization, so your contribution is fully tax deductible.  Employer matching gift information is available here.
 
Mosby Woods PTA EIN/Tax ID number is 23-7403490. 

Please note: we are officially listed as the Virginia Congress of Parents and Teachers.

Support Blessings in a Backpack

 
Blessings in a Backpack is a nonprofit organization with the sole purpose of easing childhood hunger.  At Mosby Woods, Blessings in a Backpack provides 90 students with food to help feed them over the weekend. 
 
Food bags contain three breakfast items (like oatmeal), two main meal items (soup, etc.), and three snacks (such as apples). Community and parent volunteers bag food and deliver them to the classrooms weekly.
 
We need your help!  We are serving 90 children but many more in the Mosby Woods community could use our assistance.  Here are 3 ways to help:
 
1. DONATE FOOD DIRECTLY THROUGH OUR AMAZON WISH LIST
 
Purchase food from the list of food items at Amazon.com and it gets shipped directly to the school for our program. 
 
2. DONATE MONEY THAT WILL BE USED SOLELY TO PURCHASE FOOD FOR KIDS
 

Please visit  blessingsinabackpack.org.  You can donate online or by mailed check.

 

Online donation instructions:

  • Click the red Donate Now button

3. DONATE YOUR TIME

 

We are always looking for parents who would like to help our cause to combat childhood hunger.  We meet weekly to bag food and deliver bags to the classrooms.  Time commitment: 1 hour weekly.

K-Cup 

 

The PTA is requesting donations of K-cups for teachers and staff to use with the Keurig Brewing Systems in the upstairs lounge and the modular.  K-cups can be found at many grocery stores, Target, Wal-mart, Bed Bath & Beyond and other convenient stores. They are quick and easy to use and there are so many K-cups brands to choose from - Starbucks, Green Mountain, Caribou and many more types of coffee, plus tea, cider and hot chocolate.

 

 **Please make sure to purchase K-cups made for Keurig K-Cup machines - the pods made for Keurig Vue or Tassimo will not work.  Thank you!!!
