Uniforms Funds

The PPS Foundation offers uniform assistance to any student in Peoria Public Schools. The request for uniforms must be made by a PPS staff member.  Please contact your school office so they can facilitate the access to this resource.  

Emergency Funding

The PPS Foundation also offers emergency fund assistance to students and their families.  These requests must come through a PPS staff member and be signed off by the school principal.  Examples of funding request can include emergency assistance for basic needs, dental work, eye exams and glasses, or transportation needs. 

Donate to the Little Free Pantry Program

Please donate today to help us meet our $10,000 goal to help fund the Little Free Pantry program for the school year.  A donation of $100 provides enough food to stock a pantry for 1 month... but every dollar makes an impact. 

Did you know? Many parts of Peoria are considered a food desert, with very few accessible stores that provide groceries, including fresh produce. We have 26 LFPs located at each of our schools stocked year-round to help bridge this gap.
