March 2021 Volunteers of the Month – Our Partners

“If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.”Booker T. Washington

A lot of good work has been done in the last year by Pasadena Educational Foundation for our community. Yet, we couldn’t have done it without the dedicated support of our partners. Together we’ve helped Pasadena Unified School District families in new and countless ways – from serving meals and fresh produce, to delivering food, to distributing donated books, toys, games, and sports equipment. We’ve created outlets for new connections and harnessed good will to great effect.

As we move out of the worst throes of the pandemic and begin to reopen campuses, we want to honor those organizations who have volunteered their time and resources to buoy our community during this extraordinarily challenging time. Their members have put in hours of care and hard work over the last year. Their labors have helped to keep those in our community farthest from opportunity afloat.

To celebrate their drive and relentless support over the last year, we’re making these community organizations and their members our March 2021 Volunteers of the Month:

All Saints Church
African American Council of Pasadena Unified
Collaborate Pasadena
La Canada Congregational Church
Neighborhood Church
Pasadena Village
Pasadena Educational Network
Pasadena Covenant Church
PFAR – Pasadena Foothills Association of Realtors
Tournament of Roses
Young & Healthy

Thank you to all of our Partners! Let’s keep lifting up our community together.
