Whitnall High School
A Message From The Booster Club
Sadly, it is tax season again. Happily, there is a way to give to WFBC with no cost to you! HR Block is offering a $20 donation to the WFBC for anyone who gets their taxes prepared by them this year. There is one caveat - if you used them for your 2018 taxes (prepared in 2019), we don’t get a donation. Any other year - no problem, we still get the $20. Please click here   for the flyer that has our ID number to participate. Thank you!
