I-T pledges $5K for middle school sports
The Sonoma Index-Tribune announced Friday it has pledged $5,000 toward completing the fundraising effort led by Save Our Sports, a citizens group trying to raise some $55,000 to save athletic programs at Altimira and Adele Harrison middle schools.
Middle school programs were cut out of the 2012-13 school district budget because of the state’s continuing budget crisis.
To date, a little more than $40,000 has been raised. The Index-Tribune pledge, in the form of a dollar-for-dollar match, should come close to meeting the goal if residents donate accordingly.
Contributions can be made by check, made out to either SOS c/o Altimira PTO, or SOS c/o Adele Harrison PTO. Checks should be mailed to Save Our Sports, P.O. Box 752, Sonoma 95476.
Online donations can also be made by going to adeleharrison.org and following the links to the PayPal button. Donations are fully tax deductible.
