Aug. 25: Internet Connectivity Fundraiser with Villa Dolce

Dear MCPASD Families,

We’re sharing a reminder that Villa Dolce is donating 10% of its proceeds on Aug. 25 to our fundraiser for virtual access for MCPASD students in need!

We had a great turnout at last Tuesday’s fundraiser, and we would love for even more people to dine with Villa Dolce this Tuesday!

How the Money Is Being Used

With the all-virtual beginning of the school year, we want to help ensure that all MCPASD students can engage and succeed in online learning. We’re supporting an initiative to help provide devices to district families who can’t afford internet access or need assistance with MiFi internet access devices and Chromebooks.

The first family to take part in the district’s pilot program now has working internet access. Nearly 50 families have already submitted requests for free internet, and the district’s Technology Services will begin working with them this week.

Donors have raised $41,000 since the fundraiser
 started in July! Our fundraiser with Villa Dolce will get us closer to our $50,000 goal.

How To Participate

On Tuesday, we invite you to dine with Villa Dolce, which offers takeout as well as outdoor and indoor dining for lunch and dinner. Menu and hours are on Villa Dolce’s website.

We deeply appreciated Villa Dolce partnering with us to support MCPASD students in need, and we thank you for supporting our students during these tough times.
