Support our parent groups: Go shopping!

Lord & Taylor is holding its annual charity shopping event on April 7, and all Ridgewood residents are invited to participate. How does it work? You purchase a ticket for $5 and then you receive 15% off or 20% off all day long on April 7. The group you're supporting receives a donation from Lord & Taylor. It's a win-win! The Ridgewood LSHSA (Learning Services Home & School Association) and RHS Project Graduation are two of the local groups your shopping can support. The LSHSA raises funds to help provide Special Services teachers and therapists with items on their "wish lists” that aren't in their budgets, along with funding "Teacher of the Year" awards and two Special RHS scholarships for graduating seniors. Project Graduation funds the event that keeps our young people safe on graduation night. To purchase tickets online, click here: Use the drop down box and click on "Learning Services Home and School " or "Ridgewood HS Project Graduation" as your charity. Order before April 3 to receive your tickets on time.

(Honestly, there are dozens of charities you can choose to fund with your shopping purchases...scroll down the long list and choose your favorites. Just wanted to let you know we have a couple of school groups on the list.)
