Gift Card Plus

Gift Card Plus is a District-wide fundraiser administered by the PTO Council with help from each of the individual PTOs.

The program offers District 28 families and friends the opportunity to purchase gift cards from various retailers, including movie theaters, hotels, gas stations, restaurants, and specialty stores. The program also features local businesses such as Sunset Foods, La De Da, and The Book Bin.

Gift Card Plus revenue allows the PTO Council to host family and parent programs, publish the calendar and directory App, support the Traveling Art Show, and make a significant donation annually to the Homer O. Harvey Scholarship Fund.
