IPPC: TEACHER APPRECIATION GIFT CARDS

IPPC is partnering with IPSD 204 again this year to hold the Teacher Appreciation and School Supply Program. This program aims to help families say "Thank You" to 204 teachers and staff members through the purchase of gift cards with a portion of the money going to purchasing school supplies for under-resourced students in the district!

The gift cards can be purchased through our Memberhub store from 4/4-4/22. There are five different gift card options along with a cash donation option. The $25 purchase is split into $20 for the teacher appreciation gift cards and $5 to IPPC for the purchase of school supplies. Families can leave a personal message for the teacher or staff member they are purchasing a gift card for at the time of purchase! Thank you in advance for helping to make this program a success!!
