The Pohatcong PTA is grateful for all the families who donate items to the Tricky Tray. Anything you can offer will be appreciated. In addition to monetary donations and gift cards, there are many ways to help. Here are some suggestions: Pet items, Appliances, Electronics, Sports Gear, Toys, Books, DVDs, Tools, Housewares, Office/School Supplies, Beauty, Bedding, Bath, Non-Perishable Food & Beverages. Just drop off items at the main office and we will be happy to arrange and wrap up your donation for the big night! Items can also dropped off at the gym lobby entrance in the evenings leading up to the Tricky Tray. Contact Janna at jborelli1202@gmail to arrange a time.
Family Donation Drop Off Form (Make sure to attach this to your donation in order to receive recognition in the evening’s program. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!)
In addition to family donations, the Tricky Tray Committee gladly accepts gift certificates from local businesses. Please consider asking your dentist, hair stylist, auto mechanic, manicurist, landscaper, accountant, etc. to donate to Tricky Tray. Businesses can receive a tax deduction and are also advertised in the event program. If you or a friend has a home-based business such as Tastefully Simple or Thirty-One, we would love to include your products too!
All donations will be accepted until March 31st. Again, thank you to the parents and community members for making the Tricky Tray our largest fundraiser of the year. All proceeds benefit the children of Pohatcong School and go toward fun and educational programs that enhance the school experience.
***Due to snow, this event will be rescheduled for a later date. On Friday March 10th, Steve Seskin, a Grammy nominated songwriter, will present two assemblies for all K-4th & 5th-8th Pohatcong students. Seskin has written songs recorded by Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney. We hope students will enjoy his musical message, “Don’t Laugh at Me”. For more information, visit http://www.steveseskin.com/presskit/
Here is a music video of “Don’t Laugh at Me” sung by Mark Willis.
