The Salvation Army of the Lehigh Valley is pleased to announce it has received a $3,000 sustaining grant from the PPL Foundation.  These funds will support the Youth Enrichment Program at The Salvation Army Allentown corps.

Providing services that help youth nurture the love of learning are among the highest priorities of The Salvation Army.  Through our Corps Community Centers and other facilities, we provide a positive and motivating environment wherein children learn and grow.  Our after-school program provides children with nutritious meals, tutoring services, reading assistance, computer access, mentoring, recreational activities, art classes, music instruction and more. 

This grant will provide great support to the more than 150 children in Allentown that are enrolled in our Youth Enrichment Program.  These children come from low income homes and neighborhoods and The Salvation Army meets their need for after-school and summer program care.

“We want the communities we serve to be vibrant and thriving,” said Carol Obando-Derstine, PPL Electric Utilities- Regional Affairs Director.  “Organizations like The Salvation Army do so much to educate children and to revitalize the surrounding neighborhoods. We are pleased to be able to provide support for such an important initiative.”

Thank you PPL!
