We would love for you to participate with us in the Great PUCS Serve-a-Thon 2021! This year, we will be participating in service projects with our family and through the school. Amid the ongoing pandemic, many families need help to attend our wonderful school, Pittsburgh Urban Christian School (PUCS). PUCS has responded amazingly to the situation and has done an excellent job with both online and in-person education through a very tumultuous year. The faculty and staff have been working hard to connect with each student, respond to changing circumstances, support families, and keep everyone engaged in group and individual learning. The entire school is committed to learning and serving - not just for one day but for a lifetime.
The Serve-A-Thon is PUCS' largest fundraising event and an important part of how we make the amazing education at PUCS affordable for all our students and families. The money we raise will go toward scholarships and school operations.
For our service project, our family will be picking up trash each week between now and the Serve-a-Thon on Friday, May 7. We want to serve our community (Edgewood and Wilkinsburg) and help to keep the Nine Mile Run watershed clean! We will also be serving along with our classmates: sending cards and letters to incarcerated women through the Foundation of Hope; an air quality project with Women for a Healthy Environment; and litter pickup, weeding and planting, and landscaping for the Wilkinsburg Community Forge.
We have made a video to tell you more about PUCS and to ask for your help. Please check it out at https://youtu.be/NV2GQHiAhSc.
We encourage you to support us and would be glad to answer any questions you may have. Feel free to donate via this website, or contact our mom at [email protected] for information on mailing a check. We would be happy to talk via phone or video chat to tell you more about PUCS' amazing story!
