Penn Manor staff members contribute nearly $20,000 to PM Ed Foundation

Penn Manor employees this year contributed nearly $20,000 to the Education Foundation during the recent payroll contribution fund drive — the second increase in a row.

More than 200 staff members contributed a total of $19,780 to help fund Penn Manor Education Foundation scholarships, Venture grants and Strong & Healthy Families program.

PMEF expects to award nearly $170,000 to students, teachers and families through these programs in 2019-2020.

Employees who donated $40 or more received a PMEF cell phone/tablet holder, and donors of $80 or more received $10 gift cards graciously supplied by Copper Hill Restaurant.

Donors who gave $100 or more were entered into a drawing for a $100 gift card. The winner was Candy Steiner, a sixth-grade teacher at Martic Elementary School.

Congratulations to Candy, and thanks to all who helped support our nonprofit Education Foundation!
