Blogger's Note: The following was submitted by the Spring-Ford Education Association.

Aloha Bowls delivered to Parkhouse.
After Spring-Ford Education Association and Pennsylvania Education Association events and trainings were canceled for the spring and summer, Spring-Ford Education Association decided to put that $3,500 in association funds to good use in the community.

On Tuesday, SFEA supported local businesses while thanking the 150 staff members working at Parkhouse Nursing and Rehabilitation Center for all they do to care for our community’s loved ones.

Sweet Aloha Bowls, a Spring-Ford family owned business that employs many Spring-Ford students, prepared bowls.

Collegeville Italian Bakery and Pizzeria, a business always willing to support our Spring-Ford community, made pasta with meatball meals.

On Wednesday, SFEA donated $1,000 to Operation 143.

Operation 143 is a local nonprofit
organization providing backpacks of food for more than 400 students in local communities who would go hungry over the weekend without this program.

Since Spring-Ford schools closed, Operation 143 has given SFEA members the opportunity to continue to deliver bag to more than 70 students in our district on a bi-monthly basis.

 SFEA wanted to pay it forward to Operation 143 for the invaluable resource they provide to our students.

Finally, on Thursday, SFEA donated $1,000 to Project Outreach, an organization the association has had a partnership with for many years.
