Fundraiser Update:

AUTOBELL: The Autobell fundraising cards were ordered before the school shutdown and have been received by WBOPA. Please contact us via email to coordinate a safe handoff of the cards and forms (cannot do a large distribution until the statewide Stay at Home Order is lifted).

SMITHFIELD HAMS: Due to logistical and safety issues surrounding the distribution of hams, the Smithfield ham order was cancelled (with no financial penalty). The forms and the money collected by the students will be returned so that refunds can be issued back to those who ordered hams. Fill out and return this form to wbopatreasurer@gmail.com ONLY if you participated in the Smithfield ham fundraiser. There is a separate form for getting trip deposit refunds.

Thank you for your patience. Please stay safe and healthy!!
