GC PTA Fundraising Committees

Garden City PTA Fundraising Committees Descriptions

Membership

Every voice, every member matters when it comes to making your child’s education the best it can be. The more members we have, the stronger we are, and the more influence we have on decisions involving the welfare and education of our children.

The Membership Committee develops the annual campaign and calendar of activities to encourage PTA membership to all parents, teacher/staff and community members. The Committee designs and communicates all publications and promotional materials to aid in recruiting and retaining members.  The Committee is also responsible for all aspects of membership from member sign-up and payment to distribution of membership cards.

Our annual membership drive is also a significant fundraiser and offers flexible volunteer hours and nighttime opportunities.  This Committee has Committee Chairperson(s) and a team of volunteers.  

If you enjoy creating a sense of community, have a knack for marketing and communications and enjoy working with a dynamic team, then this is the committee for you!

PTA Dinner

The Dinner Committee hosts a spectacular fundraiser each year with our annual Dinner Event held in the spring. The Dinner is our largest fundraiser of the year. There are many ways to get involved with this event and at various levels. Flexible volunteer and nighttime opportunities are available for this event. This Committee has Committee Chairperson(s) and School Building Representatives.

If planning a party for 450 of your closest friends and neighbors sounds exciting, then this is the committee for you! We promise you will have a great time in return.

Sportswear

The Sportswear Committee is responsible for keeping our community decked in maroon and gray. Garden City sportswear and related Garden City spirit items are offered primarily for online sale to order however, there is always a selection of cash and carry merchandise on hand at school events.


This Committee has Committee Chairperson(s) and School Building Representatives and offers flexible volunteer and nighttime opportunities.  


If you just love spreading Garden City spirit and have a flair for fashion, then this is the committee for you!

Photography

The Photography Committee organizes the photo days for our K-11 students.  This team of volunteers help out on school photo days (only two-three days depending on the school)  and act as the liaison between the parents, schools and the outside photo company. This Committee has Committee Chairperson(s) and School Building Representatives.

If you want to help record those childhood memories and spend a few hours volunteering in your child’s school, then this is the committee for you!

School Supplies

Thanks to the efforts of the School Supplies Committee, parents can spend more time at the beach than in the stores over the summer break. The School Supplies Committee organizes this convenient, one-stop shopping event that offers school and grade-specific required supplies to school families. The Committee works to ensure the best quality and pricing of the products offered. This Committee has a Chairperson(s) and volunteers for School Supply on pick-up day in June.

If you want to help a few hours volunteering on a Saturday, then this is the committee for you!
