FILL OUR BUCKETS CAMPAIGN 2020-2021

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions this year, we are unable to raise funds through the traditional community building in person events we have come to know and love within the Nellie community.

Therefore, it is more important than ever to focus our efforts into areas where we can positively impact and further advance the education of our students and support our teachers at Nellie McClung.

The school has identified the buckets of technology and arts as requiring additional funding and have set a fundraising goal of $20,000.

If you can support our great school, students and teachers please consider making a financial contribution to our 2020/2021 Fill Our Buckets campaign.

Your donation will have an impact on ensuring our students receive the best education possible and will be used to further support advancements in technology based learning and artistic expression. Donations can be made through signup genius, cheque or e-transfer to treasurernellie@gmail.com.

All donations over $20 will receive a tax receipt for the year the donation was made. PLEASE MAKE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS IF YOU WOULD LIKE A TAX RECEIPT.

The Fill our Buckets campaign will run from December 2020 through January 2021.If you would like a tax receipt for the 2020 year, please make your donation prior to December 31, 2020.

HERE IS THE SIGN UP GENIUS.  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0844AEA72FA3F85-nellie2
