Help us refurbish the boring Learning Commons for all our kids! New shelves, lounge chairs, carpets, books, Café tables! You can help create a dynamic space by Purchasing gift cards for stuff you already purchase… Groceries, gas, books, coffee, movies, clothing, home improvement, etc.…. And they are delivered right to your door with a click of your mouse. You can even set up a standing monthly order. Buy a $100 gift card, get a $100 gift card. And the best part is that Dalewood gets a percentage of the value of each gift card as a thank you for buying the cards! If every family bought $100 worth of gift cards (using money they were going to spend anyway), we could raise over $2000! It's that easy. Simply go to http://www.fundscrip.com and enter the special Dalewood code: Get shopping, Dalewood!
