PCF CLOTHING DRIVE:  Thank you to everyone who donated to our clothing drive during the last week of school.  We are making arrangements to do a clothing distribution (along with school supplies) on Saturday, August 21, 2021 just in time for the start of the 2021-22 school year!  The clothing distribution will be held at the high school in the Gold Gym (park on Tennis Court side).  The hours will be from 8AM until noon.  Save the date!

PCF 25TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION:  Speaking of saving the date, PCF will hold its 25th Anniversary Celebration on Sunday, September 12th from 2-6PM at Durham Hill Farm in Pipersville https://www.durhamhillfarm.com/  This is an adult-only event.  Ticket price and other details to be announced.

INTERNET SURVEY FOR FAMILIES:  To help schools determine which students have an “unmet need” for a connected device and/or internet access for off-campus learning, the PA Association of Intermediate Units (PAIU) and the Penn State Extension have teamed up to release a short survey for public school districts to send to parents.  The survey results will be invaluable in two ways: 1) they will serve as the data collection instrument so schools can successfully apply for the new Emergency Connectivity Fund, and 2) they will inform state and county leaders where Internet is not currently available so funding can be directed towards broadband build-out to those homes.
