The Joel Barlow PTSA is asking the community for prize donations to help celebrate the Senior Class of 2021. The Barlow Seniors will have their Senior Prom on Friday, May 21st. Since this will be their only all-class celebration, due to Covid, the PTSA is looking for door prize donations for the event.

Our wish list is gift cards in any amount for local restaurants (e.g. Redding Ridge, EVS, Greiser’s, Chips, diners, pizza, Ferris Acres, Sunny Daes, Buffalo Wild Wings, Panera, Subway, Starbucks, Chick Fil-A, Garden Catering) or entertainment (such as movie theaters, iTunes or gas gift cards) or shopping (especially for college and dorm, e.g. Bed, Bath & Beyond, Amazon, Target or just plain Visa or MasterCard).

The Seniors also love items for a dorm room, e.g. mini fridges, printers, coffee makers, iHomes, iphone speakers or power chargers, or personal items such as jewelry, certificates for salon or barber services, etc.

Monetary contributions to help purchase above items are also very appreciated. You can donate either online at or by check to PTSA, ℅ Joel Barlow High School. 100 Black Rock Tpk, Redding, CT 06896.

We will be collecting until May 15th. Items can be mailed to the PTSA (℅ Joel Barlow High School), dropped off at the school, or pick-up can be arranged. Please contact with questions or to arrange pick-up. Tax donation forms are available, and donations of any size are appreciated.

Thank you for helping us make this class’s unusual Senior Year more fun!
