Making the Best of 2020 - 2021
On the night before the first day of school PBF volunteers quietly delivered signs of encouragement and unity to each of our school buildings, administration office, and even on the square downtown!
We hope they serve as a source of joy and inspiration.
And the best part - now YOU can have one of these great Yard Signs too! Our first 200 Annual Campaign Donors will receive a Yard Sign as our THANK YOU gift. GIVE NOW
Launch Grants for NHS Seniors
In the spring of 2020 the PBF was proud to award twelve $500 Launch Grants directly to graduating seniors.
The grants were used for personal expenses to help the students transition to their next venture, whether it be college, trade school or entering the work force.
Thank you to our 2019-2020 Friend of the Foundation members for making these special grant awards possible!
We know more NHS seniors would benefit from these grants. Help us raise an additional $6000 to fund the grants in 2021.
