Fundraisers & Donations

Purdy's Fundraiser for Christmas

Dr. Gladys McKelvie Egbert School Parent Association is fundraising with Purdy’s Chocolatier, just in time for Christmas!

If you’d like to support us through purchasing some very sweet Christmas gifts for friends, family and yourself, please see below.

For your convenience, we invite you to shop online. To access the Fundraising account, enter the following link:

We have a few catalogues at the school (limited supply) 

After you’ve signed in you can buy chocolates or invite others to join and support our Fundraising Campaign. 

Alternatively, we can accept cash only at the office, no cheques please. Please put in an envelope

FYI: If you are selling to friends and family and they create their own account to access the Dr. Gladys McKelvie Egbert fundraiser, their order will be delivered to the school in their name, not yours.

Deadline for orders is Nov. 27. Orders can be dropped off in the school office anytime between now and then. The pick up date for orders is planned for Dec. 13 at the school.
