Philipstown residents can help earn cash for Haldane and GUFS
The Haldane and Garrison School PTAs have teamed up to launch a series of “no-sweat” fundraisers to support the organizations’ work for local public schools. While families with school-age children are reminded of these programs often, the PTAs want to invite all area residents to participate. Combined, these programs earn the PTAs thousands of dollars each year – funds that are spent on educational, athletic and art activities that enrich Philipstown schools.
