It goes without saying, 2020 has been a tough year for so many reasons. We have all had to adjust and things can be challenging on a daily basis. At Pulaski, now that we are into the third month of remote learning, I am amazed at the resolve of the teachers, administrators, parents, and students to adjust to a completely new way of learning.
The Friends of Pulaski would like to bring a little bit of good news and is happy to announce our 2020 Match Campaign. This fundraiser is special because all proceeds go directly back to the teachers. We have several generous (and anonymous) Pulaski families that would like to express their thanks to our wonderful school with a generous donation – a matching gift. For every dollar you contribute during our Match Campaign, the amount will be doubled by our match families! We just need your help for the full impact of their generosity to be realized!
Our generous families have pledged a total of $5,000 as a matching gift. This means every dollar you donate to Friends of Pulaski will be doubled, up to $5,000, between now and December 11th. Help us reach our $10,000 total campaign goal; any donation will make a difference. If you donate $10, the school will receive $20!
We can’t thank our teachers enough and this year’s campaign proceeds will be used to directly support our teachers when they return to in-person learning. There are items that our dedicated educators would love to have for their classroom to make it comfortable and safe for students, but may fall outside of the budget due to CPS purchasing restrictions. All donations made will be distributed directly to teachers to use as they see fit in their classrooms.
