Young philanthropists from our Youth Philanthropy group gave away $1350 dollars this year–more than a fourfold increase from last year. This was due to their success in raising money by selling food they made, contributing from their own earnings, soliciting from staff, and some matching donations from Triskeles board members.

The causes selected were: The Food Bank of Chester County, PASA (Pennsylvania Sustainable Agriculture Association, Main Line Animal Rescue, the Food Pantry at the First United Church of Christ in Spring City, and The Clinic in Phoenixville (check still to be presented).

It’s a wonderful, and educational, experience for a young person to be able to give a donation to a good cause and to hear in person how that money will make a big difference in the local community. We’re sure that these young people, and the others whom they represented, will continue to be positive forces in their communities for a long long time.

Thank you, donors of all ages, for helping us make this wonderful experience possible.  Pictures of the day are below, clicking on the picture will take you to a Picasa album:
