Fund-A-Need 2020 - Outdoor Picnic Tables


Every year the GEF identifies a need of the Grafton School District's that our community can help support. In the past, we have supported the building of a school store, flexible seating, chromebooks and more!

This year more than ever, our schools have to be creative in using outdoor spaces for learning, lunch, collaboration, mask breaks and more. Currently, many students are eating lunch on the grass, or standing outside socially distanced for breaks. With your help, they can have comfortable seating! The tables will also be able to be used for outdoor classrooms when the weather is suitable!

Our district's ultimate goal is to provide outdoor seating options that will be used not just during the year of a pandemic, but for many years to come.

Please consider donating to a very worthy cause. Every donation makes a difference.  Click the link to the right to donate now!

Grafton Orthodontic Apple Pull Drawing

We will be selling 100 caramel apples at our live event. After an apple was purchased through the online auction website (use the Buy Now button), we'll add your name to a drawing to win a pair of Apple AirPods Pros! Every apple purchase equals one entry in the drawing. Apples can be picked up with auction items.  You can buy your apple now!  Click on the link and the apple purchase is on the bottom of the auction list.

Stay tuned for more exciting details.  The streaming link will be made available the day of the event.
