Direct Donation Fundraiser

 

Our first fundraiser of the year continues! Our goal is $15,000 to support field trips, assemblies, enrichment programs, family events, staff appreciation events, and scholarships. 

Direct donation eliminates the hassles of traditional fundraising programs, gets more money to our classrooms, and allows your money to work harder for our students. 100% of your donation goes directly to the school and is tax deductible!

Last year the PTA spent $20,000 to support MWES and gave additional donations to the school for two water bottle filling stations, laptops, & musical instruments. This was all possible because of the strong support of Mosby Woods families. 

This year, we would like to fund additional bottle filling stations, laptops, and sporting equipment.

To donate, please complete and return the Donation Form or donate online. 

Thank you for your support!

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

  • Under Donation Information, select Designation, Other

  • Another box will pop up: enter the school's name "Mosby Woods Elementary, Fairfax, VA" to ensure funds are allocated to the school

 

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.

 

Please direct any questions or interest to Sue Heard.

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!!!
