PPAS Clothing Drive

The seniors are sponsoring a clothing drive through January 28th. The goal is to reach at least 100 bags we can donate. Items to bring include clothes, shoes, belts, purses, sheets, towels, and stuffed animals. Every pound counts and will help fund senior events.

Please bring items in a black garbage bag to the black box before school.

The Humanities class that donates the most items gets a pizza party! Tell your classmates!

Singing Telegrams

Send a virtual singing telegram performed by PPAS Classical Vocal students and teachers and bring a smile to the faces of your loved ones.  With your donation of just $10, $15, or $35, you can select one, two, or sixteen songs to send to your family, friends, neighbors, or coworkers. Selections range from holiday favorites “A Very Merry Madrigal,” “Let it Snow,” “Joy to the World,” and so many more. 

Your donation will help PPAS continue providing quality performing arts education to hundreds of children in New York. 

Giving Tuesday!

Every year, PPAS needs your help to enrich our children’s middle and high school experience. This year we need you more than ever!  NYC budgets have been cut and even though were are back in person, Covid is still limiting our ability to fundraise successfully.

We need our entire community to pitch in, please!  Any amount (one-time or recurring) can really help. Would you consider $30/month to cover your own child or $60/month to cover two students? Please don’t forget this donation is TAX DEDUCTIBLE!!!

If you haven’t heard, the countdown to Giving Tuesday, the world’s biggest day of generosity, is on and we are trying to reach our goal of 100% participation. The PPAS PTA needs your support today to ensure our students’ success continues into the winter and spring semesters and beyond.
We are so grateful for the donors who have already given — but we’re not there yet! We need your help! In celebration of Giving Tuesday on 11/30, help us reach our goal with your tax deductible gift to the PPAS Family Giving Fund. Your generosity will show PPAS students how proud you are of their fall accomplishments and support our students into the months ahead.

The Family Giving Fund (FGF) pays for programs that are not paid for by the Department of Education. Through donations to the Family Giving Fund, and monies raised through fundraising efforts, thePTA will fund all of the essential and enrichment programs that make PPAS the exceptional school it has always been.
We encourage you to give any amount your family is able to give. All donations are tax deductible truly make a difference in our community! Online donations are being accepted now at ppaspta.org/donate

We’ll send an email following this one explaining in greater detail all the different types of items that make great auction items. 

TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE… the celebration is around the corner so we ask that we all reach out to at least 1 friend, neighborhood business, family member TODAY…that’s just 1. If each one does so we will secure funding for our students and expand further on opportunities to come!
