PCWL Supports Pearce High School and our Troops! 

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Attention PCWL……It’s time for PWCL Giving Week September 17-24, 2020!!!

Why not North Texas Giving Day, you ask? Because one day is never enough! Click here to make the dreams of a PHS student come true!

 

We are asking that everyone dig deep into your generous hearts and donate to raise more scholarship funds. You can donate to an existing scholarship or even better- create your own! For a donation of $500 or more, you can create a new named scholarship for which you define the criteria!

 

And, wait…there is more!!! We have several VERY generous members who have pledged matching funds up to $2500.00! This is WAY more bonus $$ than we would have obtained via NTGD, so let’s pull together and see what sort of impact we can make. Please email Marilyn Hall if you could join these amazing women by providing more matching funds! It would be ideal if we could reach $5000 in matching funds to entice collection of matching donations for a total of $10,000 in one week. We can do it!!!

 

Click here to donate  and then challenge at least one friend to donate as well. When donating, please use the comment section to indicate the scholarship for which you are donating. If you are donating $500 or more and want to start a new scholarship in honor or in memory of a loved one, please put their name in the comment section with the word -NEW.

 

No amount is too small, and for each donation you will receive a letter thanking you for making a difference along with the necessary documentation to reflect its tax deductible classification.

Many thanks to the Pearce Community Women’s League for another 50 cloth masks. (Deni picked them up last week). This brings the total up to 350 – a phenomenal contribution and a lot of work on your part.


At this time, we’ve been fortunate to obtain adequate supplies of personal protective equipment, including masks. Your contribution through this time has been very much appreciated – it made a difference.


Now that our supplies are strong, please take a break as we’re in good shape. Know that you made a significant impact for us.

 

Best always,

Dr. Steve Richards
Scottish Rite Hospital

 
A big "Thank You" to all of our seamstresses as well as the donations that made this endeavor possible.   We helped our community, and you should feel proud!



AN AMAZING PCWL YEAR!


Dear PCWL Membership,


It has been my pleasure to serve as your PCWL president for the 2019 – 2020 year. We accomplished so much this year beginning with our annual back pack drive to our December toy drive. This spring we have sewn over 250 masks for Scottish Rite Hospital and we awarded over $30,000 in scholarships to JJ Pearce graduating seniors. Even with COVID-19, we were not deterred. I am proud to be a part of this organization.


Because we were unable to have our spring general meeting, I am presenting our 2020 – 2021 slate of officers at this time. Our by-laws state that we must vote on the slate. Only nays need to respond. You can see that the President elect/scholarship position is open. Please consider volunteering for this rewarding position.

 

The slate of officers for next year are:

President – Marilyn Hall

President Elect/Scholarship - Deanna Carrillo

2nd VP/Programs – Laura Bartolome

3rd VP/Membership – Jacqueline Ferris

4th VP/Credits – Kathy Weatherford

5thVP/Fundraising -Carla Bolner

6thVP/Fundraising – Erin Lenardon

7Th VP Fundraising - Open

Secretary – Jamie Harrison

Treasurer – Heather Novak

Parliamentarian – Leslie McFarlane

Social/Education Activities – Kaye Johnson

Tender Loving Care – Tricia Freeman

Our nominating committee was made up of Kathy Weatherford, Vicki McCoy, Holly Lee and Jamie Harrison.

 

Again, it has been a great year serving as your president.

 

Regards,

Paula Moore





To Our PCWL Moms and Pearce Moms!

PCWL, like every social organization is on hiatus for activities until it is determined that we are all safe from the health concerns of today.  However, we have had a wonderful community service opportunity taking place in making masks for various organizations to help with the shortage of these items during this quarantine. 

Our membership year is drawing to a close and we are looking forward to renewing our existing members and bringing new members on board.  We have so many wonderful community service projects in which we participate that are invaluable to our Pearce community members.  In addition, there are many fun social functions that we can become involved in once again - hopefully in a few more months.  Stay tuned here for updates to our philanthropic and social calendars -- and please rejoin us again this year or begin your post-high school mom life by joining the rest of us in PCWL!
