Proceeds support Glenridge PTO programs.

Learn2Earn Donations

A quick reminder to make sure you fulfill the pledges/donations you made to students during our Learn2Earn Read-a-Thon Fundraiser.  We are still waiting on approximately $500 to be submitted.  Make sure to remind friends and family too. When everything is accounted for we can award prizes!

Box Tops and
Labels for Education

Be sure to watch for Box Tops and Labels for Education when you are shopping and preparing your family's Thanksgiving meal.  A new contest is coming soon.  Wondering what to save or where to save them? Check out ideas on our website.

Black Friday Shopping

Don't forget about Glenridge while you are out getting great deals this weekend. There are lots of ways you can help! Make sure you are using Amazon Smile, make sure Glenridge is your selected school when you shop at Target with your Red Card, Fred Meyer helps every time you use your rewards card and many others.


Another great way to help during the holiday season; download the Shoparoo app and snap a picture of your grocery receipt on your smartphone and you've made an instant cash donation! You can also take pictures of your non-grocery receipts (clothing stores, electronics stores, restaurants, and more) for entries into Shoparoo's $1,000 and $15,000 sweepstakes. It's quick, it's easy and every little bit helps.
