Eagle Trek is Here
The Tucker Farmers Market is pleased to welcome Evansdale Elementary to the community booth this week. Stop by Thursday, September 20, to find out how you can help them reach their fundraising goal.
This week, Evansdale Elementary kicked off their fall fundraiser, the Eagle Trek walk-a-thon!
Last Fall, this joint effort between the school’s PTA and foundation raised approximately $56,000 seperately. This year, the hope is that by working together we can reach
EVERY Evansdale Eagle will participate in the walk-a-thon on October 4th. Students will walk laps during their PE period.
For the next three weeks, students will be collecting pledges from family members, neighbors, friends and others. To donate, go to www.evansdalepta.org and click the Eagle Trek link. Perhaps your child was an eagle or you know current students and would like to help.
Proceeds for this fundraiser will go to provide teacher training, classroom resources, enrichment programs and materials, additional staffing not provided by the county, as well as numerous events and programs to enrich and engage the Evansdale community. With your help, every minute and every step will raise money to improve the school and the overall learning experience. We are making this happen at our school, and all of the proceeds stay here.
Sept. 20 and Sept. 27: Visit the Tucker Farmers Market to donate
On the next two Thursdays, September 20th and September 27th, committee members will be at the Tucker Farmers Market, collecting donations and promoting the event.
If you would like to bring your kids with clipboards and pledge sheets, they can solicit donations from community members and Tucker area business people.
A delicious way to contribute
On the afternoon of September 20, the Old Tucker Fountain will also host an ice cream social. The owner, a former Evansdale Eagle, will generously donate 50% of the cost of the ice cream sundaes to Eagle Trek (we’ll receive $2 per sundae). It will be a really fun way to support our school fundraiser! We hope to see you there!
