Caring & Sharing

Did you know?

About 13% of Encinal students are in need this year for the holidays

77 students need help through our scholarship program


Mission: The PTO Caring & Sharing program mission is to help children and families in need at Encinal School. PTO Caring & Sharing programs range from providing snacks for children in need who arrive early to school, to holiday drives to collect funds, grocery cards, and gifts to distribute during the holidays, to scholarship programs.


Programs:  PTO Caring & Sharing has ongoing programs the entire year that include:

  • Thanksgiving DriveFeed a Encinal Family in Need - a drive to collect funds and gift cards needed to provide $50 grocery cards to Encinal families in need at Thanksgiving
  • Holiday Giving Tree- a gift-giving opportunity for the Encinal community to support our Encinal families in need at the holidays


Volunteer Opportunities: Volunteering is as easy as baking breakfast muffins once every few months, shopping for toys in December, or donating funds to support Encinal students and families in need.


Donations: It costs roughly $150 to sponsor a scholarship for one child for the year, but a donation of any amount will help a child in the PTO Caring & Sharing program.
