Purple Feet Foundation: Summer Camp Update

PFF Donor Report Sept 2014
PFF Donor Report Sept 2014

Dear Friends of PFF, 

This summer, thirty one students from Harrisburg, Philadelphia, South Park (PA) and Prince George's County (MD) experienced the thinc program at Eastern University. This year marked the first time students returned for a second year. Ultimately, students will participate in the thinc program for three consecutive years leading into their start of high school.

Also, this fall we are expanding the support we provide to students throughout the year. We are partnering with Cabrini College on a mentoring initiative that connects college students to our Purple Feet students both virtually and in-person. 

So many good things are happening because of your support.  Please take a few moments to see the impact your kindness is having on these children.

Friends of PFF: Spring Report

To our friends of PFF,

Thank you again for your support. We are 45 days away from our anchor event - the thinc program. This year we are doubling the number of students who will participate. It has been quite a year, and we can’t thank you enough for your continued support.

We run the Purple Feet Foundation with a 100% volunteer staff and support our programs through private donations. Here is what we are investing in together:

"The reason I would like to attend the thinc program is to meet new people like me who would like to learn and have fun. I would like to learn new things and find out what really makes me, me. I would also like to thinc about my future and what I want to be. I'd like to get away from all the drama and drug dealing for a week. I would like to relax for once and worry about "me." I think that the thinc program can help me get started on some of these things."

Hi, everyone.

Thank you so much for your generous donations in the past two months.  We are off to a great start in 2014 and wanted to share some quick updates with about the Purple Feet Foundation.

We are gearing up for this year's thinc program and are doubling the number of students who will be able to participate.  Our holiday book drive for #Giving Tuesday was a huge success!  We also hosted a wildly successful Community Science Night in Harrisburg to kick off the recruitment process for thinc 2014.  All in all, the new year is off to a fantastic start.

Thank you again!
