Local Products Fundraiser

  • The Local Products Fundraiser is our PTA's main fundraising event!  We sell awesome holiday gifts from local vendors with the proceeds supporting many student programs like the Missoula Writing Collaborative, CoMotion, the Paxson Art Experience, Classroom Funds, Teacher Inspire Grants, books, field trips and more.  Your purchases make a difference in Paxson students’ lives...we couldn't do it without YOUR SUPPORT!
    The  Local Products Fundraiser  for the 2022 school years is open!  We're swapping out paper order forms and upgrading to an online platform again this year.  Obviously, this will help with no-contact safety, but we are hopeful it will allow you to reach more friends, family and coworkers too.  Send out the link and friends can shop and pay for items themselves.  A few things to note:
    • Unfortunately, we don't ship items.
    • Please have supporters include your child's name at the checkout so we know what to include when we bag all the items ordered under your child's name (if you have multiple children, pick one child or feel free to have orders listed under each).
    • IF you are an alumni or community member with no connection to current students, please write "Self" and "Pickup" in the Child's Name section and come pick up your items on 12/5.  Email us with questions please.
    • We will collect items from our local vendors and have them ready for student families to PICK UP at the gym on Monday 12/5. Pick up from 3:15-6:00 pm in the Paxson gym. Please enter the gym from the door on Higgins Ave. Orders will be grouped by student seller name. If you are unable to pickup on Monday afternoon, please email to make other arrangements. 
    • Once you pick up the items, you will get in touch with the supporters who bought items from your students and you will deliver to them. Coordinate a time for drop off to make sure they are home to get the goodies!
    If you need an intro email to send to family and friends, feel free to borrow this one:
