While the pandemic has impacted millions of people and organizations nationwide, Kids’ Chance of Pennsylvania (KCPA) is forging ahead with a virtual event to provide educational scholarships to kids of injured workers. Pond Lehocky, a proud partner and supporter of KCPA, is helping to share the non-for-profit’s mission and give kids a hand up.
As founding partner Jerry Lehocky is on the board of KCPA, we’re bringing you opportunities to “share the love” and help support the education of kids of injured workers.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Due to the pandemic, KCPA canceled their annual silent auction and golf outing scheduled for this fall. In lieu, they are hosting their first–ever online auction from June 10-12, 2020. The auction is open to the public. Items range from gift baskets to sports memorabilia to outdoor activity sets. Bidding ends on Saturday, June 13, at 11:59PM and has been made easy with watch alerts that can be set up for your favorite items. Search through all items here.
KCPA works to provide scholarship grants for secondary education to children whose parent/guardian has suffered an injury, illness or death at the workplace. Even during the Covid-19 outbreak, KCPA strives to continue their mission and provide help to workers.
