The Bushy Park Elementary PTA is pleased to announce a service partnership with People Who Need People (PWNP).
PWNP is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization established in 2007 to serve the needs of women and children who are homeless by partnering with established charities in Maryland.
By linking together friends and family, PWNP increases the awareness and responds to the needs of women and children’s shelters in Maryland. Through their volunteers’ efforts, donations and special events, they strive to make a difference in the emotional and physical needs of homeless women and children.
Every PTA® member is asked to step up and become a service leader in their community by identifying unmet needs in their schools, developing their own service projects, and recruiting new PTA and community members who are interested in the same issues. Volunteerism often stops at the schoolhouse door when volunteers leave the building. However, this effort is designed to encourage people to stay involved and invested over time by building effective relationships with each other through meaningful, outcome-oriented activities.
“We believe a service partnership with PWNP aligns well with the National PTA Standards for Family-School Partnerships and our own organization’s desire to give back to our community and help those in need.” Randee Wilding, PTA President.
