PPIE NEWS

PPIE supports all 15 public Pleasanton schools. Fundraising Update - We have good and challenging news. After the first week of school, PPIE received 75% in family donations compared to this time last year. That’s great - and is much higher than we feared. The challenge is that we are about $140,000 below this time last year. You can still donate at www.ppie.org/donate-online, and be sure to add your company name - to automatically get all the info you need to secure company matching. Thank you for considering.
 
Who / What we support: Student Wellness
With your support, PPIE provides important funding for Student Wellness - support counselors and our new Wellness Director who is helping to coordinate outreach and support for students and parents at this stressful time. If you have questions or concerns, please contact PPIE at mail@ppie.org and we’ll ba happy to forward your inquiry to the appropriate PUSD staff member.
 
Packet pick up for PPIE Virtual Race 2020:
Remember the PPIE Virtual Race last spring? Last week, we distributed our beautiful Virtual Race shirts and medals to our race participants. To support our key supporters, we held 4 pickup sessions at BayClub, Porky’s, SaltCraft and SideTrack Bar & Grill. We thank them all for hosting! And, very special thanks to the wonderful volunteers of National Charity League who made this possible. 
 
What’s next:
We are planning a fun, innovative Virtual Gathering (via Zoom) on Saturday October 17 at 6 pm. To make this FUN, guests may opt to get DINNER DELIVERY from selected Pleasanton restaurants to support these business. Stay tuned for more information!
