second annual Winter Coat Drive Campaign
For the second year, we are launching our Winter Coat Drive to bring much-needed resources to our most vulnerable Center City PCS students. Last year, with your generosity, the drive provided 80 students with coats and winter accessories. Our students were thrilled to receive new warm coats and our families were grateful for the support received.
As temperatures begin to drop, we’re reminded that many students we serve aren’t prepared for the upcoming winter weather this year. Our families’ needs continue to grow in the ongoing pandemic, economic insecurity is rising and many families are facing tough decisions.
Will you join us in supporting this critical need? Here’s how you can help:
SHOP our Amazon Wish List Items purchased from Amazon will ship directly to Center City PCS District offices and be distributed directly to students. Items included on the list – hats, scarves, socks, gloves, earmuffs, etc.
DONATE to this important cause. All monetary donations will go directly to purchasing a coat for those students in need. No gift is too small.
SHARE our campaign with your network. Our goal is to raise $5,000 by October 22nd which will provide each student that is currently experiencing homelessness with a winter coat.
The pandemic continues to bear a financial burden on many of our families, your support will bring critical relief to students in need this Winter.
WAYS TO Support Center City PCS YEAR ROUND
While per-pupil funding pays for operating expenses, Center City PCS raises funds to provide our students with enriching learning experiences outside of the school day, such as camping trips, instrumental music lessons, and service-learning field trips. These experiences deepen our students’ learning and make instruction more meaningful.
