    Easy Fundraising Opportunity


    During the current school year we are not able to run our traditional fundraising events.  So, in order to help out the ZCES Parent Club, we have come up with an easy way to support the programs.


    With any of your shopping needs, whether they be purchasing supplies for your house or the upcoming holidays, you can kick back a percentage of your purchases to ZCES Parent Club.


    How, you ask?  It's quite easy.  Simply click the link below for FLIPGIVE and enter the code DTHHSR.


    Join the team and start shopping, either through the app or on the website and we'll earn money every time you purchase from places you already shop.  The possibilities are endless with the thousands of participating retailers.


    Thank you for helping support our fundraising efforts!
