Richland Elementary School students, staff, and families raised $14,244.30 for the KDKA Turkey Fund, which helps provide meals to local families. This is the first year that the school has participated in the fundraiser. PNC Bank matched the funds bringing the total to $28,488.60.
“I am happy to share that our total raised is for our first year participating in the Turkey Fund,” said Principal Jenna Sloan. “We are beyond honored as a school community to be a part of this wonderful collaboration to positively impact families in need right here in Pittsburgh.”
She credits PTO President Sloan Curren, PTO president, and student Jazlyn Gunn for helping steer the fundraising program, along with Wexford Elementary School Principal Kelly Gutafson for helping mentor.
