• Retail Fundraising

    Hillcrest PTA earns thousands of dollars each year by partnering with businesses that contribute a portion of their proceeds to our school when we shop or dine there. We encourage you to support these businesses and help raise valuable fundraising dollars for Hillcrest. A description of each program is below. Also check out the “Retail Fundraising” bulletin board in the hallway. There is something for everyone and every budget.

    If you have questions about any of these programs or if you have additional partnership ideas please contact Laura Boysen-Aragon at scrip@hillcrestpta.org.
