Garrison Elementary School will hold its 4th annual community auction online from April 30 to May 4. The school is asking for donations (an item or gift certificate) that will be auctioned to raise money for great programs for the school.

Garrison is a public school serving the Logan Circle/U Street/Shaw neighborhoods. It is a Title I school where more than 50 percent of its students are from low-income families and 25 percent have special needs.

The school wishes to raise funds to provide fun and educational activities like field trips, teacher support and family fun nights. Last year, donations helped raise more than $7,000, which has gone to fund necessary programs for students in need.

Because it is recognized as a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS tax code, donations should be tax deductible. The Tax ID number is: 46-3561818.
