Fundraising Request

Please share this message with your friends and family:

Dear Coal Creek Canyon Community,
My name is Tricia Logan and I am at teacher at Coal Creek Canyon K-8 and am currently sponsoring a trip for the 7th and 8th graders to go to and experience Washington DC. Unfortunately, we have a few students that are short the necessary funds. We have been working hard and fundraising throughout the year, but with such a large class those raised amounts are spread thin. I am asking for any kindness from our community in the form of monetary donations. We are still about $5000 short! Any amount is helpful. Cash or checks can be sent to the school in care of Sheryl Roberts (the Principal’s Secretary). We sincerely appreciate any help you can give us. We are getting close to our deadline and any donations would need to be in by January 10th.

Coal Creek Canyon K-8
c/o Sheryl Roberts
11719 Ranch Elsie Rd
Golden, CO 80403

If writing a check, in the memo line please note that this is a Washington DC trip donation.
