THE GRANDPALS CHALLENGE

Show your LOVE to PSRC's Matching GrandPals winter campaign!

Thanks to a generous gift from the George H. and Estelle M. Sands Foundation, all gifts up to $20,000 will be matched dollar for dollar. That's twice the impact to help fund this sweet intergenerational program that sponsors 120 GrandPals who read to kindergarteners, first, and second graders in 16 classrooms. Help sustain this program by generously offering a gift that will provide funding for years to come.

Help us celebrate the joy of reading!

Your gift is fully tax deductible.
