Loving Wilson 2018

November 13, 2018

Dear Wildcat Community,                                                                                          

We are excited to launch our Loving Wilson direct donation campaign! Our focus for this campaign is to provide the funding for the fabulous Classroom Food Adventure program! The Classroom Food Adventures program through the Corvallis Environmental Centers gives our Wildcats the opportunity to learn, prepare and taste local foods all the while incorporating science, math, and literature! These funds will also allow for purchasing playground equipment for physical wellness in PE/recess and support our annual Wellness Fair in the spring!

Our goal for the 2018 direct donation drive is to raise $5,000. Accomplishing this goal will ensure the sustainability of the Classroom Food Adventures program at Wilson along with funding other wellness activities and events. Every gift, large or small, will directly benefit our Wildcats in partnership with our Wilson Parent Teacher Association (PTA).

Every gift makes a difference for the students at Wilson. You can give online through our Wilson PTA at https://wilsonpta.org/donate/.
