Huge thanks to everyone who gave on #GivingTuesday

Together, we raised more than $9,000 on our first-ever #GivingTuesday. Such a strong kick-off to our year-end RISE UP Phoenix Fund campaign, which will help our PTA respond more nimbly to classroom needs that arise throughout the school year, such as:

  • Adaptive reading software that’s helpful to all kids, especially those who are new to the country and just learning English.
  • Art supplies to give kids more outlets for their creativity and shelving where they can more proudly display their artwork.
  • Subscriptions to a digital library that gives kids oh so many more books to choose from than are available in classrooms and the school library.
  • Support for families of 40 Hawthorne students who are homeless.
