Thank you for your participation in our fundraising efforts. WVGS benefits significantly from your generosity.


For example, the Staples fundraiser contributes approximately 50% of the office supply fund. While the aluminum cans raise the equivalent of the technology budget. The Fry's rewards program also brings in a significant contribution.


Please continue to support WVGS by participating in any of these programs.


If you have any suggestions for a fundraiser or any questions please send them to and someone will get back with you.



We always need your aluminum cans! Please continue to collect your aluminum cans and bring them with you to each General Meeting.

Aluminum Can Recycling Fundraiser

Please crush/smash your aluminum cans if at all possible. If you're not sure if a can is aluminum, grab a small magnet. If it sticks to the can, IT'S NOT ALUMINUM. "Ensure" cans are not made up entirely of aluminum. Please place in a separate bag. WVGS cannot recycle tin food cans. Bring cans to membership meeting. Please keep your cans over the summer and bring them to our September meeting.
