Live Free Campaign

Live Free Day is coming quickly (March 1st) and we are asking for support from our parent community. Our Live Free campaign is our only fundraiser for the food programs offered at Montgomery Village.

As part of our Food program, each classroom has fruit bowls and snack bins with healthy snacks for hungry kids.  In addition, every Friday morning, each class receives fresh fruit and veggies along with 2 other food groups.  In order to continue to provide these programs we need to raise money through our Live Free campaign.

There are a few different ways we are hoping you can support us.

1. Donation of funds to Live Free
2. Donation of chocolate bars for our raffle baskets
3. Donation of time to help with asking for raffle basket items from our local community, shopping for the food needed, baking muffins the day before our Live Free Community breakfast on Friday March 1st here in our gym, cutting fresh fruit and help on the morning of our Live Free Community breakfast.

Here is a timeline of jobs that need doing:

1. AS SOON AS POSSIBLE : Asking for donations at local business – a letter from the school is provided – this involves going to the local business, explaining what we are looking for (gift certificates or items which can be raffled), leaving the letter, going back to collect the gift certificate or item.

List of business: McDonalds, Freshco, No Frills, Meridian, Booster Juice, Pita Pit, Little Caesars, Galaxy Cinema, Kelseys, Swiss Chalet, Montana’s , Bluebird Cafe…, Shoeless Joe’s

and anywhere else that anyone has a connection to that might be willing to donate.

2. Shopping for Food breakfast for the community WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27 or THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28

3. Baking banana muffins for the community breakfast WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27 or THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28

4. Cutting fruit for community breakfast THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28 or 7 AM FRIDAY, MARCH 1

5. Shopping for supplies at dollar store – table cloths, napkins etc… BEFORE WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27
