Schwan's Cares

Parent Teacher Orgnizations (PTOs) are vital to supporting schools and untimately, to helping students succeed. The PTO for St. Mary Elementary and Blessed Pope John Paul II Middle School in Muncie, Indiana turns to Schwan’s Cares™ to raise funds for both schools. “The Schwan’s Cares fundraiser helped our school purchase materials for projects and activities for the entire school,” says Rebecca, a representative of the PTO. Their first campaign raised over $1,300, and they appear on track to meet their goal for this year.

Rebecca likes the ease of the Schwan’s Cares format: “The fundraising campaign couldn’t have been easier. We announced the campaign through our bulletin, newsletters, and PTO meetings, a few weeks before our start date.”

Another great aspect of running a fundraiser through Schwan’s Cares™ is that it’s a win-win for participants and fundraisers alike, “Parents, teachers, and members of the community were eager to help the school, while at the same time, stock their freezers with quick and tasty foods. It was a win/win for the school and for families.”
