Roosevelt Food Pantry Updates
Thank you to everyone who has helped keep our pantry stocked! Let’s continue to be a community that takes care of each other.

We love your food donations to the pantry! We are no longer accepting canned or glass items as these pose a food safety risk. See the attached list below for items that can be safely donated during the winter months.

ADOPT-THE-PANTRY: To ensure we can keep the pantry safe and stocked, we are asking for volunteers to sign up to adopt the pantry for one week (or more). During your week, we ask that you pick a day to:

  • Check the inventory
  • Discard any perishable, damaged or expired items
  • Contact Sara Luke (sarajaneluke@gmail.com) with any items that seem low (starches, breakfast, protein, meals, etc) and we will use donated funds/food to keep it stocked
  • (If it’s in your budget that week) Replenish the pantry

We will post a list of suggested/safe items inside the door of the pantry for those checking and donating. You can also view this list here. Thanks in advance for signing up!

DONATE TODAY: And of course we’ll always welcome your contribution so we can shop and keep the pantry stocked. Donate HERE.

Thank you for improving our little piece of the world!

Fundraising for Roosevelt PTA
There are two easy ways to begin fundraising for the PTA with no additional cost to you!

  1. Placing your Amazon orders through http://smile.amazon.com will automatically raise money for the Roosevelt PTA. Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. Just open AmazonSmile on your computer, (Sorry, the app doesn’t work!) search for “PTA Wisconsin Congress Roosevelt School,” and start shopping!
  2. You can still clip those box tops but many products no longer have clipable box tops. In these cases, start scanning your receipts! Head to https://www.boxtops4education.com/ Sign up for an account, download the app on your phone and easily scan your receipts to earn money for the PTA. You can designate a different class to receive the points each time you scan.

Mask Drive
In order to ensure all children have access to clean face masks at school, we are accepting mask donations at Roosevelt.  Please click here for mask recommendations and guidelines.
