Be a “Secret Helper” This Holiday!

Your donations recently helped to pay off the student lunch debt for some students at the Phoenixville Area Early Learning Center. Families experiencing financial hardship are often unable to keep up with lunch costs which means students incur debt.

In PASD no student is ever turned away or “lunch shamed.” Recently some ‘secret helpers’ (a.k.a. PCEF donors) delivered a check to pay off the PAELC lunch debt.

Watch this quick video about this effort – then CLICK HERE to become a “secret helper” too!

School Supply Drive

We know you’re just beginning to enjoy summer – the pool, the beach, summer camp, and vacation! But PCEF is prepping for the new school year. One of our signature programs is Pack a Backpack.

We provide fully stocked backpacks and school supplies for those students who cannot afford the cost of these items. Backpacks and supplies can run more than $40 for some grades!

If you’d like to help a less-fortunate student, we invite you to MAKE A DONATION to the Backpack program or purchase some items via our AMAZON WISH LIST.
