Schwan's Fundraiser

We would greatly appreciate your consideration to our Schwan's fundraising efforts! When you place an order through Schwan's, please use code 35928 when selecting a fundraiser to donate to at checkout. A portion of your order's purchase value will be donated to IBSAA through Schwan's Cares. The great thing is, your order won't cost any more than it otherwise would.
