Our Reed parent groups have 3 different ways to support Reed in March: See's Candies YumRaising, Dine & Donate at Gourmet 47, and FarmFresh to You!

March 1 - 19: See's Candies YumRaising!

Big picture

Monday, March 1st through Friday, March 19th

Chocolate for a good cause, what could be sweeter? Every See's Candies purchase made through our online storefront earns 20-50% per item back to Reed to support our school!

The best part is that -- because it is online and shipped right to the door as soon as the order is placed -- anyone in the contiguous U.S. can purchase! So your Aunt in Austin or your Grandpa in New York can support Reed and enjoy some yummy treats!

Orders are due by March 19, 2021 and should be received within between 7-10 days of ordering.

Spread the word to your friends and family! Follow and share the link to start enjoying and supporting:

*Funds will be used to support our students and to shower our teachers/staff with love during Teacher/Staff Appreciation in May! Our Reed staff has worked hard this year to support our students during virtual learning. This is a great way to give back and say thanks!

March 10-12: Gourmet 47 Dine & Donate!

Wednesday, March 10 through Friday, March 12 - between 9am and 3pm

Please come out and support our newest neighborhood restaurant on the corner of Moorpark and Colfax: Gourmet 47 Caffé & Catering!

Enjoy the freshest gourmet coffee, egg breakfasts, pastries, salads, paninis, and more! We highly recommend you pre-order the day before or early the same day to ensure the freshest preparation for pick-up. There is also some outdoor seating available.
