The Peoria Education Foundation has extended a fantastic opportunity for community members to help Peoria Unified teachers and students.

By donating $25 to the Peoria Education Foundation, you can provide support to Peoria Unified staff and students for the upcoming school year. Donate by July 25 and receive a brand new backpack! Parents and community members can even sponsor a child who might not have a new backpack by making a donation and specifying that it go to a student in need.

Backpacks will be available for pick-up in one of three colors at the District Administration Center located at 6330 W. Thunderbird Road. This is a limited time offer, so donate today! To make a one-time donation and enrich the lives of the students and teachers within the district, follow this link:
