“Schwan’s Cares”

Sutter Park PTA is raising funds with Schwan’s Cares.  You can help by allocating some of your family’s food dollars to this grocery delivery service.  If you have never experienced Schwan’s before, now is a great time to try it and benefit our school. Through Nov. 12, 40% of egift card purchases and 20% of grocery purchases will be donated back to our school!  Please share this campaign with friends and family across the country to support our students!

I tried it.  When I placed my order, it said there were no delivery dates in my area.  I proceeded to the end of the ordering process, including payment.  I received an e-mail that they would contact me for delivery.  Two days later, several bags of tasty frozen food were delivered.  My delivery time is every other Wednesday, 3-5 p.m.  I chose personal delivery, since I am home a lot, but you can choose a drop off.  If you leave out coolers or insulated bags, they will pack your order with ice bags (free).  It seems you will get one freezer bag free with the fundraiser.  Otherwise, if they have to provide freezer bags, it is approx. $5 per bag, charged to your account.  This is a great service for busy families!  Try it by Nov 12 and help our school earn funds from Schwan’s!  Questions?  Contact Jane Witherspoon, pastpres@sutterparkpta.org
