FREE money for Paddock!

That's right, we said FREE! You can help earn money for Paddock without spending an extra dime!

All you have to do is save receipts, clip box tops, designate Paddock on your charge card or feed your family on certain nights at nearby restaurants.

If you don't clip, save or eat - it is like passing up free money! These funds add-up and make a big difference towards key programs and activities for our Paddock school children.
