Our Elrod’s Cost Plus Dallas ISD
Field Trip Fundraiser 2016 has completed and was a big success. We raised
$21,107 for the Dallas ISD. This money went to support educational field trips
for Dallas students.
Elrod’s Cost Plus Field Trip Fund 2016 supported:
-17 schools (Elementary, Middle and High School)
-44 different field trips
HOW IT ALL STARTED
WE SAW A NEED
One of our local schools contact us inquiring about a
donation. We wanted to know more about the needs of our schools, so we asked
some questions. We discovered a surprising lack of funds for our neighborhood
children to attend educational field trips.
WE HAD AN IDEA
We wanted to do more. We Contacted the Dallas Independent
School District and with their help we set up the Dallas ISD Field Trip Fund.
WE DID IT
Elrod's Cost Plus raised $21,107 for the Dallas ISD Field
