Dine & Shop for WPELC

You may make a donation at any time, but, throughout the school year, our Fundraising Committee is busy hosting fantastic events for our families. These events provide an opportunity to build our cooperative community, have fun and contribute to the school! Our Fundraising Committee partners with local and national merchants and restaurants to provide a variety of ways you can fit giving to WPELC into things you may already do. Some programs run all year through and some are a big bang at one time of the year.

If you have a fundraising idea, please let us know at fundraising@wpelc.org.

Amazon Smile

amazon_smileYou can earn funds for WPELC just by shopping on Amazon. Remember to start at smile.amazon.com where you’ll find the exact same low prices and selection offered at Amazon, but with 0.5% of your eligible purchases going to our school. Your existing Amazon account info will work seamlessly with your Amazon Smile account. It’s a small amount that can add up quickly when all our families use this option.

The Amazon Smile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible Amazon Smile purchases to WPELC.  On your first visit to Amazon Smile, you need to select Washington Park Early Learning Center to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. Or you can use our special link to add WPELC as your charity automatically: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/84-0646196. Amazon will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make on Amazon Smile will result in a donation. You use the same account on Amazon.com and Amazon Smile. Your shopping cart, Wish List, and other account settings are also the same.


Dining Out

Local restaurants including Blackbird Public House, Chipotle, and The Kitchen Next Door have partnered with WPELC to donate a portion of sales on a particular evening to our school.

WPELC’s first Fall 2020 Dine Out night is with Chook Chicken on Monday, October 26th. The Chook Chicken located at South Pearl and Louisiana will donate 20% of the proceeds back to WPELC. The offer is good for dine out, take out, curbside, or delivery! Mention WPELC when ordering, or use the code “schools20” online.
