Pencils & Crayons for Paxinosa and Cheston!

Please contribute to the Family Weekend Philanthropy Project by donating school supplies and indoor recess toys to Easton’s Paxinosa and Cheston Elementary Schools.

Both Cheston and Paxinosa are part of the United Way Community School initiative in the Lehigh Valley. A community school is both a place and a set of partnerships between the school and other community resources. Its integrated focus on academics, health and social services, youth and community development and community engagement leads to improved student learning, stronger families and healthier communities (Coalition for Community Schools).

Your generous donations will provide low-income students in our Easton community with needed resources to help them succeed academically and socially.

Please select as many items as you like from the list of suggested school supplies below. Place your donated items in the collection boxes in the Farinon College Center during Family Weekend registration times on Friday and Saturday.

Thank you in advance for helping local elementary school students explore learning!
