Our committee chairs take the lead on coordinating events, but they can't do it alone! We could use help on many of these committees and welcome your assistance. Please contact the Chair or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to get involved!

This is one of the two major fundraisers for the year. Basket Bingo is a family-friendly fundraiser held each spring. Each classroom chooses a theme and donates items to create a basket filled with themed goodies that can be won at the bingo night. We've also hosted a silent auction for family members in attendance. Volunteers can help plan the event, organize baskets, collect donations, and serve food the night of the event. We'd love to have your help at this fun evening!

This is a great volunteer opportunity that can be done from home. We need 1-2 volunteers from each grade to collect, count and log Box Tops. Volunteers should be able to pick up and return BoxTops to PFE at least 3-4 times per year.
