Kids Pitch In for Education

During the months of January and February, students from Vestavia Hills schools will be participating in the fifth annual Pitch In for Education campaign. Last year, students pitched in change, bills and pledge payments totaling a whopping $40,765. These contributions went directly to the Foundation’s endowment. The 2014 Pitch In campaign date for Vestavia Hills Elementary Central will be January 26-30, 2015.

The elementary classroom that collects the most contributions during each school’s Pitch In campaign wins an ice cream party from Brusters Real Ice Cream. The teacher of the winning class is awarded a $50 grant from the Foundation to be used in the classroom.

This year we would like to thank Mark Yanosky Orthodontics for sponsoring the event.

Watch for Pitch In materials coming home in your child’s backpack the week before your school’s campaign. Start saving your change now. Every penny counts!
