The PTA will use the funds obtained through the programs listed below to directly benefit our children & our school. The funds allow the PTA to provide a variety of things (field trips, assemblies, books, classroom supplies, etc.) that directly benefit your student. Please take the time to help out in any way that you can. Thank you for your support!  

Chatham County PTA Thrift Shop

The Thrift Shop is our most lucrative fundraiser! This is a great program because it is helpful not just to our school, but also to the community and allows families to support Pollard without contributing cash. Click here for even more details about how the Thrift Shop works. Here's how you can help! Questions? Contact our Thrift Shop Chair at
  • Volunteer to work a Thrift Shop Work Night or Work Day to help clean up and organize the store for the next day. Click here for available dates/times and to sign up!
  • Volunteer during store hours. Go ahead and call the store first to verify there is space available. The Thrift Shop LOVES volunteers!  

Book Fairs
Pollard holds Scholastic Book Fairs twice a year, to help make available to our students and staff current, popular, and classic novels, along with some novelty items such as posters, pens, etc.  Please be sure to shop at our Book Fairs, as this helps our PTA to earn much-needed funds!

Box Tops for Education

No more clipping. No more sending Box Tops to school. All you need is your phone. Download the ALL-NEW Box Tops app, shop as you normally would, then simply scan your store receipts to find participating products (for a full list of participating products, click here). The app will automatically credit your school's Box Tops earnings online. Twice a year, your school will receive a check and can use that cash to buy whatever it needs! 


Amazon Smile
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support Pollard every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to Pollard. If it's your first time using Amazon Smile, simply go to, log in, search for and select PTA North Carolina Margaret B Pollard Middle School as your charitable organization. Amazon will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at will result in a donation. To change your charity to Pollard, sign in to and select “Change your Charity” in “Your Account.” You may also want to add a bookmark on your device(s) to make it even easier!

School Spirit Wear 
We do Spirit Wear Fundraisers typically twice a year, in the fall and in the spring. Make sure you are getting the Pony Express so you know when it's happening by registering on this site!
