Pine Straw Fundraiser

It’s time for Pine Straw! Spruce up your yard and avoid those HOA letters telling you to add pine straw. All while helping our Ford Elementary School! 100% of profits go to Ford and help maintain our Outdoor Classrooms, which benefit ALL of our students.

Ford Elementary School Foundation is partnering with Brookstone Ace Hardware to offer

Ford Families the opportunity to purchase and have delivered long needle bales of pine straw at a reasonable price.

There will be 2 delivery options this Fall (October or November)

October Delivery: Due Date October 18th (Approx. delivery by 10/30)

November Delivery: Due Date November 9th (Approx. delivery by 11/20)

$4.80 per bale – minimum of 10 bales

Pricing is delivered only – laid option available for $2 add’l/bale paid separately

10 bales – $48.00                     25 bales = $120.00                   40 bales = $192.00

15 bales = $72.00                     30 bales = $144.00                   45 bales = $216.00

            20 bales = $96.00                    35 bales = $168.00                   50 bales = $240.00
