View this email in your browser

Tomorrow is National #GivingTuesday

Rigler School is participating in a state-wide effort called #OregoniansGive. Please join us in our commitment to social equity and building bright futures for children in our neighborhood. There are several ways you can make a big difference this week!
1) Make a tax-deductible donation online - any size helps. Or mail a check to
Rigler PTA, 5401 NE Prescott St, Portland OR 97218. Funds will support classroom supplies, books, enrichment programs, and staff & volunteer appreciation.
2) Help us spread the word!  Share this message with your friends & neighbors and "Like" us on Facebook.
3) Visit to learn how to earn money for Rigler when you shop at Fred Meyer, AmazonSmile, or Target.
4) Volunteer your time. We always need additional adults in classrooms, behind the scenes, in the library, art room, garden, cafeteria, after school programs, a one-time visit or weekly commitment - you name it!  Contact Stephanie Vazquez for details.

Season of Sharing Gift Boxes
The week of December 11th, we hope to distribute 60 holiday gift boxes to Rigler families experiencing poverty. The more contributions received by December 6th, the more families we can serve!
  • Please bring non-perishable food items to the main office
  • Fred Meyer or Albertson's gift cards ($15-$25 each) can be left in the PTA mailbox. Feel free to designate an online donation for gift boxes by emailing
  • Volunteers are needed to help sort & inventory toys this Friday, December 2, anytime 8-11am. If you or a friend/neighbor can help, please RSVP Anabel Morelos.
Remember to check out our page at #OregoniansGive and thank you for making this season a little brighter for our neighbors!
