Schools and other groups that raise funds from parents for school programs have teamed up to make it easier for parents to get ALL the info they need to make a match request of their employer. 

Some companies match not only dollar donations but also the volunteer hours that you as an employee donate to the organization.
Special Request: If you submit a matching request from your employer please send a short email to the school or Thornton PTSA so they are aware of the request, can look for it, and can follow up if necessary.
