Grocery Cards

Did you know that doing your normal grocery shopping can also benefit the band? Physical gift cards are available for Lowes Foods (6% savings to student's account) and Food Lion (5% savings to student's account). Please text or call Zofia Pruchnik at 919-720-2066 to purchase.

Coupon Book Fundraiser

SALE EXTENDED! We are 7 weeks into our "Coupon Book" sale and have sold 100 books to date. Our sale was scheduled to wrap up on September 25th, but we are extending our sale by one week to Friday, October 2nd. Please help us to sell more books!! We need 300 Book sales to receive maximum benefits for the band.

Both Mobile & Physical books are available for purchase here:

You can also sell books by creating and sharing a personal link here:

Click the green start selling button (& enter your child's name, grade, and Doc's name)

Please use this extra time to share your link as much as you can - with your friends, family, neighbors, co workers, club/church members, etc & remember to share on your Social Media too! We think these books pretty much sell themselves, all you have to do is spread the word. So please take this last opportunity to get the word out!

And finally, congratulations to Megan Kerr, this week’s drawing winner who will receive a $20 Moe's Gift Card. Remember for every 3 books sold, the student’s name will be entered in the drawing.

We are pleased to announce that our Dewey's Holiday Store will be returning to the same location in Waverly Place for the upcoming season! Doors will open to the public on Saturday, November 7th. Stay tuned for more info on volunteering and special events!
