school fundraising


Parents and Shafer Middle school supporters,

This year as you know has been extremely tough on everyone. At Shafer, we are no exception to the difficulty of what the pandemic has done to our school community. As a result of the current situation, we have decided to cancel our normal candy bar fundraiser so that our students will remain safe and concentrate on the daily tasks that they are required to do. We know that many of our families and supporters still want to help achieve our goals and keep our students with the supplies they need. We want to open the opportunity for you to donate in lieu of the candy bar fundraiser. We have set up an online donation link for your convenience. We would appreciate any amount that you can give to help with continued support.

Thank you for the support.

We Achieve Victory Everyday!
