WESTFORD EDUCATION FOUNDATION Holiday Card - Give The Gift That Keeps On Giving! Can’t find just the right card or gift to show your appreciation for the wonderful job your child’s teacher or special staff member has done? The Westford Education Foundation has the answer: a WEF holiday card. Send a WEF holiday card to your favorite teacher, teacher’s aide, counselor, school nurse, office staff member, or principal. It’s the perfect way to say thank you and support innovation in Westford schools at the same time. This is also a great idea for class gifts. Money generated from holiday cards will be used to fund grants for the Westford Public School system. Just make a tax-deductible donation (minimum of $10 per honoree) to Westford Education Foundation, and WEF will send the honoree a
professionally printed WEF holiday card with a personalized note. The card will state the donor’s name, but will not disclose the amount donated. Donors may also opt to send the cards themselves.
Please go to the WEF website at http://wefweb.org/ to access the Thank A Teacher form. Donors will receive confirmation emails when cards are delivered to recipients. To ensure delivery before the holiday break, please submit forms and donations by Wednesday, December 18. For more information, contact Mary Anne Seraphin at email@example.com. WEF Big Event raffle tickets are also available for purchase. Please refer to the website. WEF is grateful for the support.
