The return is 4¢ per dollar. Please bring cash if possible to pay for them; Christy will be at most band functions.  She can be reached at earlfamily391@gmail.com  or call her at 739-3026

School Fundraiser Target

SCHOOL FUNDRAISER: Target Stores is holding a fundraiser where schools can earn gift cards for clicks/votes! For every 25 “clicks” the school gets a $25 gift card for supplies. It’s a great way to help the school earn money and doesn’t cost you anything! And don’t forget: if you use a Target card when you shop, you can designate McGavock High School there as well! Please note that this is a school fundraiser, not a band fundraiser. Give With Target
