A fun goal we are going to work towards this year as a group, is to get at least one donation from each of the 50 states!
This is a fun way to encourage students to think outside the box when seeking donations and contact family and friends from other states.
HOW TO DONATE
Donation packets will be sent home with students on Monday, October 23. Students can collect donations from friends and family by cash, check or online using PayPal (See link at top of page.) They can then return their envelopes to school daily with the donations collected the night before. Their teachers will gather envelopes each morning for PTA to record and distribute prizes then return them to the students so they can work on collecting more contributions if they choose. The last day to donate is Friday, November 3. Be sure to check your student’s donation envelope for important information regarding Colt Bolt 2017.
Many companies will match donations made by their employees to elementary schools. Check with your company to see if they participate in a Corporate Matching Program and remind your children to ask friends and family when they donate to check with their employer as well. The best part for your student is that even matching donations go towards prize goals!! They can turn a $50 prize into a $100 prize with a corporate matching!! Companies that participate in the Corporate Matching Program.
As in all of our prior years we will have exciting prizes again this year. See the NEW 2017 Colt Bolt Prize video below!
