PCEF’s Accomplishments Over the Last 6 Months
It is hard to believe that the first half of our fiscal year has come and gone! Here’s an update of what PCEF has been up to!
This Year So Far . . .
1. Activities Access Fund – In July, the PCEF provided $10,000 to the school district to help economically disadvantaged students with the Pay to Participate fees that were instituted this year to offset the cost of the extracurricular activities in the middle school and high school.
2. Summer Academics – PCEF was awarded a grant of $5,000 from the 1675 Foundation in support of the 2012 elementary summer remediation program. Along with these funds, PCEF will provide $3,000 to Phoenixville Area Positive Alternatives (PAPA) to help fund the enrichment portion of this summer program.
3. Pack a Backpack– for the 8th year in a row, PCEF has provided fully stocked backpacks to preschool and elementary students in need, as well as the requested supplies for middle school and high school students in need. Costco of King of Prussia generously donated over 300 backpacks, with SEI Cares and many community members making donations of supplies. Over the last 8 years, PCEF has delivered over 2,600 backpacks to students in the Phoenixville area! (more…)
