A Challenge to Prince of Peace!

A Challenge to Prince of Peace!

Prince of Peace Center in Farrell approached the UPMC Horizon Community Health Foundation with a grant request to purchase a new van that seated up to seven passengers.  UPMC challenged Prince of Peace Center to raise $5,000 and if so, we would match their efforts with a $5,000 matching grant to purchase the van.  Prince of Peace was so successful in their fundraising efforts that they raised enough funding to receive the $5,000 matching grant from UPMC and in October 2015, purchased two used vans!  The vans are used primarily for two Prince of Peace programs: Family Support Services (HOPE Advocacy Progran and Project RUTH  Program) and AWESOME, life skills classes.  These programs assist over 75 people a year and 28 families a year! The vans can also be used to pick up and deliver food and donations when needed.  UPMC is proud to support the Prince of Peace Center.
