ALEXANDRIA, Va., (Aug. 19, 2015) — National PTA® and Schwan’s Home Service, Inc. announced today an extension of their collaboration to provide fundraising opportunities to PTAs and schools across the country through its Schwan’s Cares™ Fundraising Network. As part of the collaboration, PTA members can also receive discounts on purchases made through Schwan’s® Home Delivery.
“Nationwide, PTAs work hard to fill in the gaps—from supplementing classroom lessons with activities that make learning fun and making sure all children have access to the arts, to teaching kids how to make healthy and safe decisions every day,” said Laura Bay, president of National PTA. “National PTA is pleased to extend its collaboration with Schwan’s Home Service to support PTAs in raising funds for schools and celebrate the parents and teachers working hard to make a difference for children and communities.”
For more than 60 years, Schwan’s Home Service has been delivering high-quality frozen foods right to families’ doors, making it easier to create delicious home-style meals. Schwan’s Home Service, through the Schwan’s Cares™ Fundraising Network, also helps schools, sports teams and other community groups raise funds online by ordering from Schwans.com.
Through the collaboration, Schwan’s Home Service will:
- Contribute up to 40% of each total purchase to a buyer’s preferred school for all purchases made through a PTA campaign on the Schwan’s Cares™ Fundraising Network. Additionally, after the initial campaign period of 45 days, schools can earn 5% on purchases made during the next 90 days.
- Offer PTA members a new-customer discount of $10 off of $50 on their first Schwan’s food order.
