A HUGE thank you to everyone who participated in our annual Golf Outing on June 21st.

We were able to raise $54,208 at this event and that is amazing! These funds allow us to provide everyday essentials for Peoria Public School families, stock our Little Free Pantries with food, provide emergency funds for students in need, fund our classroom grants and career readiness programs plus so much more!
