PTAs and PTSAs are collecting cash register receipts for their schools.

Several report a slow down in the rate at which the receipts are coming in. They ask that you send receipts now, because typically there is a big rush at the end of the collection drive and counters have trouble organizing the receipts.

So get those receipts out of your desk drawer, and send them to the school of your choice. Children who use the equipment you help provide will be better for your efforts.
