Spring is the time when NYC schools generally kick off their biggest fundraising initiatives. PS 158, for example, is a public school on the Upper East Sides that is holding their spring benefit auction next Saturday, March 16, to raise money for important education programs and materials. This benefit is in addition to three online auctions the school is hosting.

We highly recommend looking into your local schools’ upcoming online auctions for great family deals that will support a good cause. Many schools participate in sites like BiddingForGood and Charitybuzz. If your child’s school has an online auction, please leave a comment below letting us know!
