Market Day - a fundraising effort available to all Homestead families and the community at large - is a company that sells delicious frozen food items and donates a portion of each sale to non-profit organizations, like Homestead PTA! A "pick-up" day is designated for each month when families who have placed orders may stop by the school to pick up their food items. Check the PTA calendar on the website's home page for Market Day order and pickup dates.
Order forms are sent home in students' Friday folders for families to view and place their orders, and usually include a special of the month. If families prefer, they may place their orders online with the user-friendly Market Day website (click here to access it). Market Day donates 10% of each order to the school (not including taxes). The first order forms are usually sent to the families in the packet that the PTA mails out before the start of the school year. The last order for Market Day is usually in May or June.
In addition, there are "Bonus" months - certain times during the school year that bonuses are offered to Homestead for specific purchases. For example, during the Fall holiday, Market Day might run a pie special where, for each pie purchased, Homestead receives an additional bonus donation! These "Special" months tend to attract a lot of orders, so extra help with unloading the truck and sorting the orders is usually needed during those times
