We need YOU to make PTA fundraisers successful! It doesn't take much to make a difference in our children's lives. Below are some of the simple ways you can get involved:
General Mills "Box Tops for Education" can be found everywhere, on a wide variety of items, including Huggies products, Cottonelle products, many Betty Crocker and Pillsbury products, numerous brands of cereal, Yoplait yogurt, Juicy Juice, and many more. (For a full list of participating products, click here.) 10 TOPS = $1.00 for our school!! Simply clip the Box Tops cleanly along the dotted lines, being careful not to cut off the expiration date, and turn them in to your child's teacher.
Dooley PTA's Online Auction is our BIGGEST fundraiser! The online auction will start on February 13, 2017 and will run until February 27, 2017. All auction items winnings can be picked up during our Spring Open House on March 5, 2017.

We are partnering with World Wear Project and going green with our fundraising! Donate your used textiles (clothing, shoes, belts, hats, backpacks, stuffed animals, etc). WWP recycles/reuses/resells the fabrics, and Dooley PTA earns money on the donated items! Tell your neighbors too. Anyone can donate to the bin. Read more here: www.worldwearproject.com.
