Carroll ISD Accepting Gift Card Donations for We Care Employee Appreciation Program

Have any extra gift cards laying around that you would like to get rid of? Carroll ISD is accepting gift card donations for the We Care employee appreciation during the month of April!

The We Care Program is Carroll ISD’s employee appreciation initiative that offers unique advertising and partnership opportunities with local businesses and organizations in exchange for funds that go directly back to supporting educators throughout the school year. This program is for local companies, organizations and even individuals or families. We Care sponsor dollars brought in through this program are spent throughout the calendar year on employee appreciation items ranging from birthday cards to end-of-year celebrations. CISD uses sponsor dollars from this program to ensure that events, honors and achievements by our staff do not go unnoticed.

The We Care program finds itself in need of gift cards to give out to employees for special recognition and honors. During the month of April, you can drop off any gift cards you wish to donate at the CISD Administration Building, 2400 North Carroll Ave. Gift cards ranging from $10-$25 to places like Starbucks, Target and Amazon are ideal, but gift cards to any local establishment will be a huge treat for our teachers.
