Our chapter raises funds to support activities fostering a strong special education network in the Shoreline community and our teachers.
We receive a percentage donation when you use AmazonSmile and designate the Shoreline Special Needs Chapter as your charity recipient. All merchandise and prices are the same as on the regular Amazon site. And once you’ve done it a few times, Amazon will typically prompt you to switch over to the Smile site when shopping as a helpful reminder!
Our annual campaign happens in October to collect funds that will be used to provide micro-grants to teachers helping special education students in our district. Last year we were able to give eight grants. Thanks to all who donated October 2017, we will be awarding even more grants. We raised $685 to support teachers helping special education students in our district. This amount is supplemented with chapter funds earmarked for grants, meaning 11 grants will be awarded for the 2017-18 school year.
Scheduled Events Past and Upcoming
Dec. 4, 2017 at Elevated Sportz: This is a no school day for the Shoreline district. Let your kids burn off energy at this fun Bothell trampoline center and help our chapter at the same time! Mention the Shoreline Special Needs PTSA when you buy tickets and any extras on site (advance online sales don’t count) and we’ll get 20% of the proceeds.
Jan. 24, 2018 at our chapter member meeting: Bring a holiday gift that didn’t hit the mark (or something else in good shape) to contribute for a white elephant raffle during the meeting. We always have lots of fun with this one.
Jan. 24, March 20 and May 31, 2018 at our chapter member meetings: Help our chapter raise some funds while making space in your home! Bring unneeded books in good shape to donate at any of our member meetings and we will resell them at local bookstores, with proceeds benefiting our chapter’s programs.
Additional events are added as we have details.
