USC parent organizations coordinate assistance for families


April 21, 2020

We Rise by Lifting Others THANK YOU to all of the schools and families who have participated in the USC SCHOOLS CARE FOR USC FAMILIES fundraiser! To date, we have raised over $7,000 for USCSD families in need! The generosity of USC families, as always, is simply and purely amazing. 

Our incredible student support services team has been distributing the funds in the form of $25 gift cards for Target, Walmart and Giant Eagle to USCSD families who could use some extra help. Every cent of the money raised goes directly to USCSD families facing difficult times. 

The list of USCSD families that need help is rapidly growing, so the fundraiser remains open for donations. If you would like to donate any monetary amount, please visit this link:  

paypal.me/BoycePTO

You may also use the following email to donate on paypal:  BoycemiddleschoolPTO@gmail.com.

Though managed by Boyce PTO, this fundraiser is not limited to Boyce families. It is a district-wide effort that all USC PTOs/PTAs/PTSOs are participating in and it helps all eligible families in all USC schools.  

If you know of a family that could use a little help, please notify your building's principal. This could be someone who faces financial strain, experiences an unexpected tragedy, has health issues, etc., and is not necessarily based on demonstrated financial need. Again, all recipients of gift cards will be anonymous. 

Thank you so much for being so wonderful, so giving and so caring. The strength of our community will continue to get us though this. 

We Rise By Lifting Others.

Hello Upper St. Clair School District Families:
 
We rise by lifting others To no surprise, USCSD families have been reaching out to see how they can help others during this pandemic. As it stands, we currently have families in USC that could use some help right now and we, unfortunately, expect to have many more in the future.  

This is why the Boyce PTO, in conjunction with all other USC PTO/PTA/PTSOs, has established the "USC Schools Care for USCSD Families” fundraiser. If you can and want to help out during this difficult time, please donate any monetary amount here: paypal.me/BoycePTO
 
Every donation, dollar for dollar, will be turned into gift cards and e-gift cards for places like Walmart, Giant Eagle and Target. 100% of the funds donated will be distributed to USCSD families. Our district’s student support services will be responsible for distributing the gift cards. All recipients will remain anonymous.  
 
If you know of a family that could use a little help, please notify your building’s principal. This could be someone who unexpectedly is laid off, a sick family member, etc., and is not necessarily based on demonstrated financial need. Again, all recipients of gift cards will be anonymous.  
 
Thank you so much for being so wonderful, so giving and so caring. The strength of our community will get us though this.
