Raise some “dough” for PACE!

Is there anything better than donuts? Yes! Donuts that help raise money for PACE!

PACE at Wellington is selling Krispy Kreme donuts to raise funds for our student enrichment programs, including STEM projects, virtual and in-person field trips, environmental camps, and guest speakers.

Each box of donuts costs $12 and contains a dozen fresh Original Glazed. (Yum!)

Place your order here by Sunday, Nov. 15: Link to form

Your donuts will be ready for pickup on Saturday, Nov. 21, between 9 am-noon at Leota Middle School in the north parking lot. You won’t need to leave your car!

Sign up to volunteer! Several volunteers are needed to distribute donuts that morning, so if you’re able to help, please sign up here: You may count this time toward your PACE hours.

And finally, please feel free to share the order form with neighbors and other local friends!

Thanks for helping PACE raise some “dough”! If you have questions, please email
