Partnership with Verizon/eTrak

The Washington State PTA is pleased to announce an exciting new affinity program, Verizon/eTrak, which offers parents a device to help keep their kids safe. This device provides a GPS tracking system with a personal alert button a child can push if he/she gets lost, has an accident or perceives danger, and provides parents with a text message and email with a map of the location of the emergency. It is now available to PTA parents for $199, offer includes device plus 1 year of service. NO MONTHLY FEE.  Plus, each subscription order earns a local unit $6 and $2 each for state and National PTA. The WSPTA, National PTA and local PTAs all receive donations for each subscription purchased.

Here’s how it works:
  1. PTA parents go to or call 800-279-1261 to obtain their free device and subscribe to the tracking service.
  2. eTrak will capture all pertinent information allowing members to choose the local unit receiving the donation, including your local unit number.
  3. eTrak will ship your device and bill your credit or debit card. eTrak will send donations to National, State and Local PTA  units, with a cumulative total of $10 for each subscription ($6 to local unit, $2 to State PTA, $2 to National PTA). For more information, click here.
