You can easily help us provide necessities like pencils, notebooks and highlighters to schoolchildren.  Just make a donation to PCEF for the Pack a Backpack program and we’ll do the shopping!

Costco has generously donated 350 backpacks to PCEF and now they just need to be filled with supplies for needy students in the Phoenixville area.

Employees of SEI in Oaks donated a significant number of items for our backpacks, as did St. James Lutheran Church in Limerick.

PCEF’s Pack a Backpack program provides school supplies and backpacks for needy students in the Phoenixville area who otherwise would start the new school  year without the required materials.  These students are living at or below the poverty line, so these donations are crucial to their success in school.

Monetary donations can  be made by mailing a check payable to PCEF at P.O. Box 348, Phoenixville PA 19460 or by clicking here.   

Thank you for making a difference in the education of Phoenixville area students.  If you have any questions about PCEF or the backpack donations, please call us at 610-933-5911 or send us an email.
