Much has been written on this site about the epic fail of the Susan G. Komen foundation break up to not break up to break up from Planned Parenthood. Much has also been written about how we should respond to those that help sponsor Komen and the work that they do but I have an issue that I need some help resolving. Follow below the fold
One sponsor of Komen is Jersey Mike's which is a sub shop that in my community has also been nice to the schools in the surrounding areas by giving teachers very nice discounts for food and also allowing the use of the shop for fundraisers and such. My school will be having a fundraiser for our PTO at Jersey Mikes soon. Our PTO is not a political entity what so ever and are doing really great things to help with moral at our school from parent volunteering to sponsoring lunches for the teachers and helping to pay for supplies. With all the attacks we as teachers are getting this help is appreciated.
My question is should I raise a point about this with them or should I let it be? Or does anyone have a suggestion that maybe I did not think of? Do I make thisabout the PTO who has been really trying to help us out or do I make it about an organization that Jersey Mikes supports that has nothing to do with helping out schools? Or am I blowing this way out or proportion. I wait your answers below
