Port-A-Pit lunch/dinner is a huge success
Photo by Patti Stokes/NWO  |  It took many PTA volunteers on the serving line and behind the scenes Sept. 26 to pack up 860 Port-A-Pit meals (including some that were delivered to local businesses), but these folks were efficient and offered service with a smile as they raised money for the school’s playground equipment and technology.

Photo by Patti Stokes/NWO | It took many PTA volunteers on the serving line and behind the scenes Sept. 26 to pack up 860 Port-A-Pit meals (including some that were delivered to local businesses), but these folks were efficient and offered service with a smile as they raised money for the school’s playground equipment and technology.

"Port-A-Pit did an amazing job having all of the food ready for us to plate and send out," said Stokesdale Elementary PTA President Dana Angel of the PTA's first Port-A-Pit fundraiser. "Our final number of plates sold was just over 860, which was almost double our goal! And we raised $3,000, which is going to be used to purchase playground equipment and add smart board technology packages to our kindergarten classrooms!


"As it was our first Port-A-Pit fundraiser, we learned a lot! We will definitely order more chicken next time!" Angel said. "We had to turn quite a few people away hungry after we ran out of our walk-in plates. This was very frustrating for us to not have enough to feed everyone. 


"Our local businesses and the businesses where our parents work were super supportive! We delivered over 200 plates!" she continued. "I am so proud of our school, and the PTA we have is amazing."
