Holiday Gift Drive

Each year, the Bell PTSA organizes a holiday gift drive during the months of November and December. We work closely with the school counselor to gather wish lists from Bell students whose families need help getting gifts for their children. We then share these wish lists with our community and ask members to purchase items from the sign-up list, wrap the gifts, and drop the items off at Bell's front office. The PTSA does not have visibility to student or family information. This is confidential between the school counselor and family. 

  • Drop off wrapped gifts by December 4th

What Does Bell PTSA Do?

The Bell PTSA is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization and is part of the largest volunteer, child-advocacy group in the country. The Bell PTSA has advocacy at the core of everything we do. In addition to our advocacy work, we focus on providing educational enrichment opportunities to Bell students, building community connection, and giving back to our community. We do not have paid employees; rather, we rely solely on community members volunteering their time and donating funds. We ask you to please donate, volunteer, and become a member


Pantry Packs

Each week, volunteers with the Lake Washington Schools Foundation come together to make weekend food packs for food-insecure families. The Bell PTSA picks up these food packs, then we purchase fresh produce to add to each bag. We also add more food to each bag using the food-items and funds donated by the Bell community. We need some help stocking our Pantry. Can you help?


Popcorn Friday

Get ready for our next Popcorn Friday. How it Works: The Bell PTSA rolls our popcorn machine outside (usually two Fridays per month) and we start poppin'. As the students head out for lunch recess, we are there waiting with yummy fresh bags of popcorn. If students want popcorn, they simply get in line. Popcorn is $0.50 per bag. 

We encourage families to purchase popcorn passes in advance, so students don't have to remember to bring money to lunch recess. Also, this is a super fun and easy volunteer shift. Please sign-up to help
