NEED has given over $72,000 in grants in the last 11 years!
THANK A TEACHER FUNDRAISER brought in over $4,550 from over 120 Norton families!
We received such generous contributions from our Norton families. The donations from $2 to $500! And each donation was sent in the name of a teacher/administrator that was thanked for their contributions.
While teachers themselves did not receive the money that was raised, they did receive a beautiful thank you card with a lovely poem and a heartfelt thank you listing the families that donated in their name.
If you missed out on this fundraiser, you can still send in your tax deductible donations after the fact.

Thanks to Horizon Beverage!!
THANK YOU to HORIZON BEVERAGE for donating $2500 to our NEED fund! Their thoughtful generosity is what enables NEED to be able to continue with our mission of granting funds to teachers who are looking for technology or programs that aren't covered by the regular school budget.
Thanks to the HAY PTO!!
Another HUGE THANK YOU to the HAY PTO for funding one of our grant requests!
They funded the "Mystery Science Subscription" - Science Curriculum pilot program for Mary Pasquantonio (HAY).
This program will go into effect in science classes next year for all 4th and 5th graders and will be a great supplement to their current curriculum.
The HAY PTO was so generous in offering to fund this grant request! Because the HAY PTO funded this grant for us, NEED was able to put the extra money towards funding one of the other above mentioned grants. Your generosity is very much appreciated!
