The Miner PTO wants to thank everyone who was involved in our 4th Annual Holiday Greenery and Baked Goods Sale on Dec 6th and 7th. We had a lot of success (and fun!) on Friday night and during the day on Saturday as we mingled with members of the community who came to Miner to support not just our sale, but the poinsettia sale hosted by Eliot-Hine Middle School and the holiday card sale held by Amidon Bowen Elementary. Working with our friends at neighborhood schools added to both the community spirit and the monetary success of the sale - our greenery and baked goods raised over $6,000 for the Miner PTO! All proceeds will benefit the school directly, in the form of technology, classroom grants, field trips, family engagement events, and more. On top of our fundraising success, we were able to donate 13 Christmas trees to families who otherwise might not have one. The funds for those donations came from the generosity of many of our Miner families and the supporters of our sale.
We are so grateful to everyone who helped with the fundraiser, whether as a baker, a volunteer, or a shopper. There were many people involved, but we want to specifically thank our event co-chairs, Maggie Ben-Or and Abby McGill, our treasurer Jamie Milhous, and our Communications Chair Jen Barrie. Thanks to their leadership, we had one of our most successful events to date!
