Pacheco PEAK Fall Progress Report & Equipment Drive

PEAK* has great news to share with you: thanks to generous donations from our community, we awarded 20 scholarships this fall to Pacheco students, K – 6th grade. These scholarships enable our students to participate in extracurricular activities of their choice, including art classes, basketball, guitar lessons, gymnastics, karate, piano lessons, indoor soccer, swimming, and volleyball. All but four students are first-time participants in their chosen activity. Now we need your help to gather equipment for these students and donations to help pay for their enrollment.

Supplies & Equipment Needed

If you have any new or gently used items listed below, please email me to arrange a time/place to drop them off. All donations are tax deductible, so if you would like a donation receipt for tax purposes, we will be happy to provide one.

  • Swim goggles, swim trunks (sizes 9/M and 6-7S), and one-piece bathing suits (size M/9-10 and XL/16)
  • Karate gi, shirt size medium, pants 12 – 14

PEAK awards biannual scholarships, and it will continue to thrive with the kindness of people like you. If you are interested in helping in other ways, feel free to call or email me, and if you know others who might be interested, forward this email to them. Thanks again for your generosity, and best wishes for the holiday season.
