Strong & Healthy Families initiative under way

Penn Manor Education Foundation is expanding its community outreach with a new program called Strong & Healthy Families. The objective is to provide assistance to families struggling with financial, emotional and physical challenges that affect school-age children.

PMEF has establish a fund to provide “Strong Grants” to support existing programs such as the Penn Manor Family Fund and new initiatives to help students pay academic fees for college admissions and testing and offset the cost of uniforms and supplies for career specialized programs.

Grants also will support efforts to improve literacy, increase affordable housing options and provide mental health awareness and training.

PMEF accepts generous donation of quilt

Many thanks to the Lancaster Modern Quilt Guild for donating a handmade quilt to Penn Manor Education Foundation to help raise funds to aid families in need. Throughout the school year, the “Modern Bars” quilt was on display at Penn Manor schools, and students, staff and community members had an opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win the quilt. The winner was announced Sept. 17 at the PMEF Annual Dinner.
