Oct 30 2018


North Penn Valley Boys & Girls Club is pleased to announce it has received a $2,500 from the PPL Foundation. These funds will support Project Learn, a free academic assistance program for economically advantaged students.

The North Penn Valley Boys & Girls Club partners with the North Penn, Souderton Area and Wissahickon School Districts to provide Project Learn to students in Grades 1 through 5 in five locations: the North Penn Valley Boys & Girls Club in Lansdale, Indian Valley Boys & Girls Club in Souderton, Wissahickon Valley Boys & Girls Club in Ambler and Hatfield Elementary School and Oak Park Elementary School. The program focuses on providing Reading and academic support to students referred by their school district. The grant received from the PPL Foundation will go directly to providing this program free to qualifying students.

Boys & Girls Club CEO, Robert Kreamer says, “this grant will directly support the students we serve through Project Learn and aid us in fulfilling our mission to inspire and enable all youth, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, responsible, caring citizen.”

The PPL Foundation awards annual grants through a competitive application and review process.

“PPL is committed to improving the communities where our customers and employees live and work,” said Carol Obando-Derstine, PPL Electric Utilities’ regional affairs director. “Supporting local organizations like the Boys & Girls Club, which enhance education for our community’s children today will help them be prepared for high-quality jobs tomorrow.”

Thank you Bergey’s Ford in Ambler

 Just in time for Winter! Dan Marlin and Sonja Desimone of Bergey’s Ford of Ambler brought new winter coats to the members of the Wissahickon Valley Boys & Girls Club through the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation. The foundation is distributing a record 51,696 brand-new winter coats to area children in need this month. The effort is part of the eleventh annual Driving Away the Cold program, which involves approximately180 local auto dealers teaming up for the greater good. One in six children in the Greater Philadelphia region lives in poverty and a warm winter coat is one of the essential items they often live without. This program aims to change that.
