Upcoming PCA Friends & Family Campaign: Action Steps

Thank you for your generous support of the PCA Membership and Friends and Family campaign so far.  We are very close to our end goal of $10,000, mainly due to PCA memberships!

Therefore, we would like to wrap up our active campaign by the end of November/December.  Please help us meet our goal by taking several steps listed below.

Friends and Family:

This weekend, we would like each student to gather at least 5 names and addresses of friends and family who you think might be supportive with giving charitably.  Bring them in their backpack on Monday, and sometime this week, time will be set aside to address pre-formatted and printed letters and stuff them to bring home to either deliver or mail.  Parents, can you help your student with this effort?

The letter we are using is attached, which can also be downloaded and done at home or be used to email out to other friends and family as you wish.

Giving Tuesday:

The Tuesday after Thanksgiving is known as “Giving Tuesday,” and we are making our last push for PCA Memberships to be made by then.  If you are still considering donating, we would love to have you make your gift on or before Tuesday, November 27.  (Of course, we will take donations at any time, but our active asking will cease this month!)

Corporate Matching:

If your company does corporate matching, please ask for the PCA, a 501c3 corporation to benefit.  Your company will have the paperwork, and our Tax ID # is 26-3487105.

If you have any questions, please contact: Sheri Zimmerman, Parent ’15, 19, PCA Membership Chair (
