Elrod’s Cost Plus Invites Dallas Residents
To Donate To The Dallas ISD Field Trip Fund
Fundraiser aims to provide transportation for local students to experience life changing educational field trips

DALLAS Wednesday, July 19th, 2017: Elrod’s Cost Plus, Post and P&G have teamed up once again to help deserving students start the new school year off right.

From July 19th through Sunday, August 31st, shoppers can visit any Dallas Elrod’s Cost Plus to donate at checkout. Suggested donation is $1, but all donations will be excepted. The fundraiser aims to support as many field trips as possible. Last year with your help we raised enough to support 15 Dallas schools.  

Dallas ISD Partnership Coordinator, Veena Armstrong said, businesses such as Elrod’s Cost Plus make Dallas ISD great.  “Our partnership with Elrod’s Cost Plus and the field trip funds raised will allow our teachers to impact student achievement and enhance classroom learning through real world learning experiences,” said Armstrong.  

The fundraiser presents the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of disadvantaged students to help them maximize their learning potential.

The program will benefit Dallas ISD students.

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)
-          4,644 students
-          44 different field trips 


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 wanted to do more. We Contacted the Dallas Independent School District and with their help we set up the Dallas ISD Field Trip Fund.

Thank you to everyone who made this year a huge success!

Thank you General Mills for supporting our local schools!
Ninety-five percent of Americans still aren’t eating enough whole grain.1
Whole grain is the first ingredient in all Big G cereals, which contain at least 10 grams per serving.
That and other reasons make cereal one of the best choices you can make. 
Another reason is because they are supporting our local schools by donating to the Dallas ISD Field Trip Fund!
