|YOUR Generosity is Making a Difference!
We got an email in early May that made us smile...
I am writing to let you know that we nominated you to receive a FPS Community Partner Award through WASA, the state superintendent association. Y’all have been phenomenal this year as we navigated challenges with COVID. Your willingness to be creative and flexible with Winterfest was amazing and your stepping up to assist with the childcare situation is an incredible gift for FPS students and families...
Joel (on behalf of the FP crew)
We've known Joel Zystra, the writer of that email, from our early days of partnering with Winterfest, an annual Pacific Lutheran University (PLU) event that provides for under-resourced families at Christmas. At the time, Joel was the Director for Community Engagement for PLU. Having a history together has made it even easier to serve our local schools when he made the move to become the Public Information Officer for the Franklin Pierce School District.
It's your consistent and generous giving that has allowed us to say "Yes" when our school districts approach us with needs, and every time we say "Yes" we're making a difference in our communities. This Community Partner Award is yours as much as it is ours. Way to go, Church!
