Shoparoo!

Currently we have 13 parents signed up for Shoparoo and are close to getting $50 of FREE money! Imagine what we could raise if we got 50 parents signed up! With certain events needing only $200-300, this could fund one of our events without ever spending any money.


Hassle-Free Fundraising! Turn your shopping receipts into donations for your school. It's that simple. Download the Shoparoo App and select East Coventry PTA as your school of choice. Every time you shop, login to the app and take a photo of your receipt. Each receipt counts as points or raffle drawings (based on your spending). Points are accumulated and turned into cash for the PTA!
