Fundraiser: A Gazebo for the Garden of Youth at Steel High

Penn’s Civilian youth development was established in Steelton Highspire High School and has been involved in programming there since 2002.  In 2007 we teamed up with the County 4H and planted a garden that we've cultivated ever since.  Every year we've added to the Garden. 

Year one, we added raised garden beds. Year two, a high tunnel.  Year three, an 8 foot fence for the perimeter and more raised beds.  In the fourth year we added equipment (compost bin, rain barrel, lawn mower, wheel barrows, etc.) and in the fifth, a shed to put it in. Last year, we added a pond and this year iowa cash advance and payday loans, our goal is to raise enough money to add a gazebo. 

The gazebo will serve as an outdoor classroom and a refuge from extreme weather conditions.  Please help us reach our goal.  Every dollar amount donated helps and is sincerely appreciated. 

For a $750 donation you will be recognized as a Penn's Civilian Project Pillar.  A plaque with the name of your choosing and a word of thanks will then be prominently displayed on a gazebo post.  All donations are 501c3 tax deductible.  Please don’t hesitate to call or email if you have any questions.
