Lunch Wagon Donations
Our school is looking for donations of lunch wagons, one for each class. These wagons will help our school by creating a more uniform, safe and efficient way for our students to transport lunch boxes to and from the cafeteria while also decreasing the number of lunch boxes ending up in the lost and found.
If you, someone you know, or a company you are associated with, would like to donate a lunch wagon, please visit our Amazon Wish List:
Wagons will be sent directly to the school!
Your charitable donation is tax deductible. If you would like to receive a thank-you letter which includes information for your tax deduction, please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org after you have made your purchase.
