Do you know about these EASY ways you can support WFHS?

While there are many ways you can help support WFHS, these are a couple of the easiest--and most helpful--ways you can help us serve our school:

1. Join the Cougar Challenge Our #1 goal as a PTSA is supporting the WFHS students and staff, and 100% of Cougar Challenge donations go toward fulfilling that goal! Please go to the "Join or Donate" page on our website, select "Cougar Challenge", and enter the amount you want to donate as your quantity. THANK YOU for anything you can contribute to help us get to our $5,000 goal!!!
2. Link your Rewards Cards! It takes just a couple of minutes to do! Go to the Free Fundraisers page of our website and use the links provided to enter your information, OR you can just scan the QR code above, answer a few questions, and we'll do it for you!! From August 1-July 31, a portion of everything you buy at these stores will go to support WFHS, and you don't have to do a single thing after linking it except shop as you normally would!
3. Shop at or donate to The Giving Tree! The Giving Tree on South Main Street is a local non-profit that accepts donations from the community with the specific goal of using the sales proceeds to generate funds for local schools!
4. Don't forget about AmazonSmile!! Do you use Amazon? Did you know your purchases can help the PTSA? Shop using smile.amazon.com instead of the basic Amazon site, and you can designate WFHS PTSA as a charity. This allows a small portion of your purchases to be donated to the PTSA, and you have to do absolutely NOTHING!! Easy-peasy!!
