Let John’s Crazy Socks Help You Raise Money for Your PTA or SEPTA

Every school, PTA, and SEPTA [Special Education PTA] in the country needs to fundraise to pay for the various activities that are so important to our schools.  Typical fundraisers are bake sales and gift-wrapping sales.  These typical fundraising techniques require a lot of work by many volunteers with very little financial reward. 

John’s Crazy Socks has the answer.  Custom socks – we do the work; you reap the financial rewards.

John’s Crazy Socks has created custom socks for many schools and PTAs throughout the country.  Here’s a list of just some of those schools:

  • Chaminade High School
  • Massapequa SEPTA
  • Mamaroneck High School
  • Commack High
  • Half Hollow Hills High School
  • Bayport Bluepoint High School
  • Dublin Ohio City Schools
  • Pleasant Valley School District

Depending upon the quantity ordered, the school pays as little as $10/pair of socks and re-sells them at between $18-$20/pair.  People love socks [they last longer than brownies] and folks purchase them as an inexpensive and memorable gift for their children/student and other family members.  The most common comment that we have received from schools after purchasing custom socks is “how can we get more quickly” because they sold out so fast!

A Partnership between John’s Crazy Socks and Your PTA or SEPTA

One of the cornerstones of the mission of John’s Crazy Socks is to show what individuals with differing abilities can do when they are given meaningful employment.  More than half of our employees have a differing ability and all those employees have been mentored and taught in fabulous schools.  So, celebrating the work of educational professionals is very personal to us.

It is a natural “fit” to partner your fundraising options with John’s Crazy Socks.
