|Schoola--Help the School While You Clean For Pesach|
Chair: Lisa Chiquiar-Rabinovich email@example.com
The PTA is partnering with Schoola to raise funds for our school. Schoola collects used women's and children's clothes in good condition, sells them online, and gives 40% of the proceeds to Maimonides to help fund programs for our kids. That's $2 out of every $5 earned!
Click here to visit Maimo's Schoola page, where you can learn more about the program and watch our progress as our earnings increase!
Contact Lisa Chiquiar-Rabinovich <firstname.lastname@example.org> with any questions.
