Creating Opportunities Through Music and the Arts
Partners of Dorris (POD), made up of parents, educators, and community members is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization committed to raising and disbursing funds to pay for programs removed by budget cuts, to seeking out and capturing new quality learning opportunities for the advancement of the students of Dorris Place Elementary, to give support to its teachers, and to contribute to the continued beautification and safety of the Los Angeles Elysian Valley neighborhood.
Budget cuts have taken away so much -- PE Programs -- Library Capabilities -- Art Classes -- Music Classes -- Field Days -- Field Trips -- and more. We're here to get these programs back and to generate income for new advancements. POD is committed to capturing top quality learning opportunities for the students of Dorris Place Elementary and to enthusiastically support its teachers.
In under 7 months, POD created and executed a sales campaign that resulted in the unprecedented sale of over 34,000 candy bars to make possible the first instrumental (violin, cello, recorder) music program to be ushered into Dorris Place Elementary. Since then, we have continued with ongoing fundraising campaigns, research and write grant proposals, build partnerships to keep the dream and music alive at Dorris Place.
How can I help?: If you want to fight fiercely for these hard working kids and their fearless faculty and you believe this little school can make a great contribution to the community, then you should become a partner of Dorris. New and existing partners can start and continue with generous support of time, resources, products and services, and financial contributions to bring back the budget slashed educational learning opportunities and programs. Contact us to submit your donation via check. For your convenience, we also humbly accept your tax deductible donations online 24/7. http://www.podpartnersofdorris.org/wa...
