2022-2023 Fundraiser

Fammatre Elementary is excited to announce a fundraiser for the 2022-2023 school year. We have teamed up with Dream Dinners, a Freezer Meal Prep Store, for a CurbsideFundraiser and our first school fundraiser date is Friday, May 20th.

These fundraisers are a quick, easy, and fun way to raise money for our school. Place your order using the link below, and show up during our designated pickup window. That's it! Each participant leaves with 3 delicious and healthy freezer meals for just $50! You will also have the option to choose from a variety of options in their Sides and Sweets freezer at meal pick-up--from delicious breakfast sandwiches and scones, to savory sides like Tarragon Honey Carrots and Bacon Ranch Green Beans.

The food will be assembled at their Camden Park store, and will be distributed at our school. Fundraisers are normally held at their store, but they've offered us on-site pickup at our school for convenience. This is a newer offering, so the reminder email will state pickup is at the store; however, all orders will be handed out on our campus. There will be NO store pickup for this fundraiser.

Here's the best part--for each order, Dream Dinners will donate $10 to Fammatre. If participants go on to place a full order (6-12 meals) within 30 days, they will give us an additional $20, so there's potential to earn $30 per order.
