2017-2018 B.E.A.R.S Campaign

DON’T DELAY…ORDER YOUR BRINKER YARD SIGN TODAY!

Do you know what the Brinker PTA’s B.E.A.R.S. Campaign is? Do you want a 2017-2018 Brinker yard sign to show your school spirit?   If you want a yard sign, you must donate before October 13th. 

B.E.A.R.S (Benefactors for Educators, Academic Resources and Students) is Brinker PTA’s primary fundraiser which provides our students and teachers with activities, programs, and resources to enrich their school year. B.E.A.R.S. means no stressful door to door selling of cookies, candles, and popcorn. No donation is too small.  Donations can be made in any amount. 

With a donation of $100 or more, your family will receive a Brinker Yard Sign.  A donation of $250 or more, you will receive a yard sign and 5 books will be donated to the Brinker Library in your family's name. 

Please click HERE to make your donation.  Don't forget to check with your company's HR department to see if they offer corporate matching. We will be happy to help provide any needed school information.

B.E.A.R.S. is a simple way for you to support our students and teachers.

Please contact Anita Dewers with questions at waysandmeans@brinkerpta.org.
