WFSS Issues Penfield Challenge to Drill Well
Through July 31st
Water for South Sudan, a not-for-profit organization located in Penfield, is planning a town-wide effort to dig a well in Africa. WFSS is partnering with a number of Penfield organizations and businesses, including the Penfield Public Library, The Barn Owl, Starbucks and Penfield Sport and Fitness Club to raise $15,000 - the full cost of a single well.
WFSS will partner with the Penfield Library for their Summer Reading Game (June 24 through July 31) whose theme this year is "Dig into Reading." A generous Penfield supporter has allowed a donation to be earmarked for children participating in summer reading game; children who fulfill their reading contracts will get to "earn" money toward a well to be drilled for the Penfield community.
They already have $5,000 committed to this, thanks to the library program donor and would like to open the project up to other Penfield businesses. Consider placing a change jar at your place of business to collect much needed funds to help dig water wells for clean drinking water, or contact them to discuss other possibilities for fundraising at your business. Visit their website to learn more about the project and for contact information.
