Where: Thoreau neighborhoods – We’ll be following the spring route with a few minor changes.

Stop by the Chocolate Shoppe at Sequoya Commons on September 3rd from 4 – close. 20% of the sales from this time period will be donated back to the PTO. Please help spread the word and invite friends and neighbors!

The Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream Company’s Sequoya Commons location is helping the PTO  raise funds to provide ongoing scholarship for at risk students who need all day child care with the Wisconsin Youth Company.  This will allow students to be supported at Thoreau by child care providers to help with their virtual learning, and provide breakfast and lunch to our students.

Check out this video to get an idea of the volume of food that went out on August 19: This video was taken at 9:45 this morning. All of these groceries were delivered to nearly 375 people and in their refrigerators before 1pm. WOW! Thanks to all of volunteers that make that happen seamlessly.
