Baldwinsville On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Baldwinsville Community Scholarship Foundation, I would like to thank the Baldwinsville community for its support of our recent Dollars for Scholars Phone-A-Thon.
Money raised from this event will be directed into $1,000 scholarships awarded to deserving college bound seniors during the district’s annual Moving Up Day ceremony on Friday, May 24. Last year, 88 scholarships were awarded totaling $96,200.
We wish to acknowledge the more than 90 students who participated in the Phone-A-Thon as well as the many volunteers who helped in countless ways. A special “thank you” to Verizon Wireless who provided cell phones for the two evenings; TOPS for providing pizza for both evenings; Pizza Man for donating “free pizza” gift certificates that were awarded as prizes to student volunteers; Immediate Mailing Services, Inc. who provided postage; and the Baldwinsville Department of Public Works for hanging our banners on the four corners. In addition, we would like to thank Renee Teich who organized all of the refreshments for both nights of the Phon-A-Thon.
If you were not contacted by one of our student volunteers during the Phone-A-Thon and would like to make a tax-deductible donation, please make your checks payable to BCSF, and mail to P.O. Box 88, Baldwinsville, NY 13027 or through our online giving at bvillescholars.org.
We are continually grateful for the support of the Baldwinsville community and its belief in the value of higher education. This is clearly demonstrated through the current donations totaling close to $40,000. Our students are indeed fortunate to live in such a caring community.
Susan Bertrand is the president of the Baldwinsville Community Scholarship Foundation.
