Windsor’s Hope Fundraiser

Dear Families,

Every year at Windsor we like to do a school wide service project to teach students about helping others. In years past this has been our Pennies for Patients fundraiser. This year we thought we would change it up and support a local organization. We will be raising funds/gathering supplies for Hope Animal Rescue, a no kill shelter located in the Des Moines metro. Monetary donations to pay for vet bills are always needed as well. Cash or Checks made out to Hope Animal Rescue will be accepted, or you can donate online through their website ( The class that brings in the most items will get to play with and snuggle puppies one afternoon for a little bit in late May (brought to us from Hope)!

Each item brought in will count towards the classroom count and each donation made will equal 1 item towards the class count. If you donate online or purchase through a wish list just let your child’s teacher know through an email or send a note and they will get it counted.

The fundraiser will run April 26th-May 7th.

If you have any questions please email myself ( or Ms. Rodriguez ( Thanks for helping us help this wonderful organization!
