Farm to People Fundraiser

We’ve partnered with Farm To People to fundraise for PPAS!

April 21st – July 1st

Get started now! Sign up Here


Here’s how it works:

Every time you shop on Farm To People’s website from now until
July 1, 2024, 5 percent goes back to the PPAS PTA.

Make that a subscription to one of their weekly, bi-weekly or monthly farm boxes and that number becomes 10%.


Q: How do I join? 

A: To join our fundraiser, simply create an account on Farm to People, add whatever you want to your basket, and enter code: FARMTOPPAS upon checkout

Q: Do I need to enter the code every time I shop? 

A: Nope! Once you’ve used the code during the fundraising time period, you’re all set. Farm to People will automatically give back 5% or 10% accordingly on all subsequent orders until the end of the period.

Q: Do I have to subscribe? 

A: No, but for every 10 customers that subscribe to any item during the fundraiser, Farm to People will add a $250 bonus to our fundraising check. However, you can always shop any of the items à la carte, no subscription required.

Q: Who can join the fundraiser? 

A: Anybody who wants to support the fundraiser can join — friends, family and neighbors. Just spread the word and don’t forget to share our code!

Clothing Thrift Drive

A message from Carly Alvo and the Climate Conscious Club at PPAS.

A clothing thrift drive has been organized for November 15th. The thrift drive is free. No money will be involved. It is a simple way to promote sustainability and encourage people to clean out their closets of clothing they no longer wear.

Let’s use this thrift opportunity to reduce, reuse, recycle, and keep it out of landfills.

Clothing donations of all sizes and styles are encouraged.
