This fundraiser is for air purifiers for Jackson Elementary School located in Hillsboro, Oregon.
Special Fundraiser Event:
Air Purifiers for Every Classroom
In the past, the Jackson Elementary School PTA had held special fundraiser events to purchase items not listed in their budget. This included technology, programs, and materials. This year, the executive board would like to purchase an air purifier for each classroom.
Our kids have been through a lot in the last two years and we're so excited to have them back in the classroom with our amazing teachers and staff and their classmates. While we can't account for everything, we believe one of the best ways we can help keep everyone healthy is to provide cleaner air in the classrooms. The CDC has recommended HEPA air purifiers that exchange the air four or more times in an hour, in addition to the HVAC system.
Here is the CDC web page regarding safety in our classrooms. We believe the "Swiss Cheese Model" is a great reason for the addition of air purifiers. With all the amazing safety measures our teachers and school are taking, we would love to do what it takes to keep our kids in school.
We have a handful of classrooms that have air purifiers, but a vast majority do not. $3150 will allow us to purchase 21 air purifiers with washable air filters. Any funds raised above $3150 will go towards additional COVID-19 safety measures that our teachers may need.
As Jackson Elementary PTA is a registered 501(c)(3) organization, your donations are tax-deductible. All supporters will receive a donor letter.
