Editor:

I am writing on behalf of the Joe Harris Elementary PTO.

Joe Harris Elementary just opened their doors to students in the fall of 2020. Opening a new school is exciting, but it comes with many initial costs.

One of these start-up costs is that of establishing our PTO as a 501-c-3 nonprofit. We are looking to find support from the community to help us with this first step by raising $600. As a 501-c-3, we can begin to participate in other fundraising opportunities to support the students and staff of this school.

We kindly ask that you consider supporting our community with a contribution to this effort such as an amount of $50-$100. Your donation and generosity will be communicated via PTO email and social media.

We will also provide a donation receipt letter with the PTO’s tax-exempt ID number for your records. If you wish to provide a check, please make it out to Joe Harris PTO.

You may mail your check to: Joe Harris Elementary School PTO, 2100 10th St. SE, Rio Rancho, NM 87124. Or, if you prefer, you can donate via PayPal.

If you have any questions or need further information, please contact us at [email protected]

On behalf of the students, parents and faculty of Joe Harris Elementary, thank you for your consideration.
