Communities for a Cause
We are excited to announce our partnership with Communities for Cause, a FREE smartphone app that makes it easy to support Ladera PTO at local merchants. It's easy to do - no coupons or discount cards to remember! Simply download the Communities for Cause App on your iPhone or Android, and select our school as the beneficiary, and show the app when you dine or shop at a participating merchant. The merchant will make a donation to our school PTO based on a percentage of sales.  To see a partial list of merchants, see below or click HERE. To visit Ladera's CfC profile page, click HERE.
