Thank you for your participation in our fundraising efforts. WVGS benefits significantly from your generosity. For example, the Staples fundraiser contributes approximately 50% of the office supply fund. While the aluminum cans raise the equivalent of the technology budget. The Fry's rewards program also brings in a significant contribution. Please continue to support WVGS by participating in any of these programs.
