The Poland North Elementary PTO recently hosted a bake sale to benefit the Diaz family, whose son, Jackson, was born with Apert Syndrome.

The bake sale offered cookies, cupcakes, chocolate-covered pretzels, doughnuts, brownies, and more for students to purchase in place of their usual extras during lunch. The proceeds of the bake sale went to help the family recover some of the medical expenses incurred by Jackson’s treatment.

“Jackson’s two older siblings went through North Elementary School and when we learned about the troubles that the Diaz family are facing, we wanted to put together something to raise money to help,” said Lisa Weimer, the PTO chair for this event who came up with the idea for the bake sale. “We are the smallest elementary school in the Poland district and we wanted to show that we could do something to help. Every little bit helps.”

Weimer and the rest of the North PTO have been in contact with the Diaz family and proceeded with the bake sale with their blessing. The PTO sent home papers to parents asking for donations and explaining the reasons behind the bake sale. Teachers donated their time and efforts to make the sale a success.

“Every staff member here at North donated at least two dozen cookies to this bake sale,” said Weimer. “I couldn’t have done this without the help of the PTO, parents and teachers. Even if we don’t make much money, it is good to know that it will still help.”
