Girls on the Run Supports Art-Reach!

A few weeks ago we received a notification from the third grade group from Girls on the Run, Lancaster would like a donation to Art-Reach. They were selling bracelets as part of community outreach program. Coach Katie says, “It’s a way for the girls to recognize their part in a larger community, to practice teamwork, and give back.”

This year, their team was impacted when one of our coaches, Mrs. Buckman, was in a serious car accident. Mrs. Buckman also happens to be the art teacher at our school, Brecknock Elementary. In honor of Mrs Buckman, the girls decided to donate to Art-Reach after learning about our mission. After weeks of selling their bracelets they had this to say about their experience: “It helped us use our creativity, collaboration skills, and star power to give back!”

Special Thank you to the Girls on the Run, Lancaster and their phenomenal teacher and coach Katie Gentile & Sheila Buckman!
