It’s Back to School Time!
Wait, didn’t summer just start?! Many people don’t start thinking of back-to-school until August, but our PCEF volunteers are gearing up for our Pack-a-Backpack Program. Our program provides grade-appropriate school supplies and backpacks to students in need in the Phoenixville area, ensuring that all students start the school year with the supplies they need to be successful in the classroom.
You can help!
We set up an Amazon Wish List with all of our needed supplies, so our supporters can easily donate to this program. It will be continually updated with the best prices, to be sure your donation will be helping the most children possible. You will have the option to ship your tax deductible donations directly to the PCEF office! Supplies for the beginning of the school year would preferably arrive at our office by July 27th to be included for the 2018 back-to-school packs, but we accept donations year round to meet mid-year requests and prepare for the next year.
If you use the Amazon Wish List, please leave the defaulted This is a Gift box checked, so we know who the donation is from!
If you donate through our Amazon Wish List, please retain your receipt for tax purposes.
You can also make a tax deductible cash donation to the program. Here is a FLYER that lists the needed supplies. Donations can be dropped off at the District Administration Office at 368 City Line Avenue from 7:30 – 3:30.
If you are interested in contributing your time to help on this project or getting more involved with PCEF please contact our Pack-a-Backpack coordinators Anne Peterson and Lauren McCann.
Thank you for your support!
