St. Matthew Catholic School Fundraising
St. Matthew school is heavily dependent on donations. As you will see in our finance portion of our web site we are dependant on outside help. This help is often given as time, talent and treasure. Below are some ways you can help.
BACK TO SCHOOL SUPPLIES
Our children’s parents often cant afford to buy their children school supplies. Thus, we gladly accept everything from back packs to pencils, pens, paper, crayons, note books, rulers, glue sticks, art supplies, etc.
CLASS ROOM SUPPLIES
Our teachers spend their own money on class room items every year. They could use items for their class rooms such as, electric pencil sharpeners, staplers, push pins, dry erase markers, construction paper, art supplies etc.
We are on a network and have Aprox. 70 work stations and 20 printers. We gladly accept used computers as long as they can run windows XP or higher. Our network will not run anything below that operating system and although we appreciate you thinking of us we simply can’t use anything less.
Printers will be accepted if they are network compatible. This means they should have a network port in them.
We can always use mice and keyboards if they are USB compatible.
LIBRARY AND CLASSROOM BOOKS
Used books are always accepted for age appropriate groups. Preschool through JR. High help build our library and class room libraries. Books should be in good shape and in either English or Spanish.
Our teachers and staff use copy paper a great deal.
CHRISTMAS FAMILY ADOPTION
As noted earlier, a lot of our families are at or below the poverty line. Providing a Christmas is often out of the question. So we could use help providing a Christmas to these families. Contact the school office for more information.
CASH OR DONATION FOR A SPECIFIC NEED
St. Matthew School will gladly accept a cash donation through our Pay Pal account at the bottom. Your donation will be used for the above outlined needs.
Also below, is a new web site we joined called “Gifting Wishes.com”. On this web site are specific needs the school has. You may go to this web site and donate to a specific need the full amount or a partial amount of a specific project.
