Yard flamingos help Harkness raise money for computers

The Parent Teacher Organization at H.W. Harkness Elementary School has an usual fundraising campaign.

The school’s PTO put out flyers asking for parents/community members to volunteer to have their yards decorated with flamingos.

Families paid $20 to get the flamingos. “They make the yards look so cute that parents have been getting on a waiting list to get the flamingos,” says Principal Isabel Govea. “Some community members have been so generous that they simply donate larger amounts of money because they know the money is going to computers for the kids.”
