Donations Fall & Winter 2023
Many, many thanks to the alumni and friends of Arrowbear who donated to our Scholarship Fund. Donations from the Fall Newsletter totaled $63,476.35. We are particularly grateful because we know these are still difficult times with families trying to recover economically from the effects of the pandemic. All of the donations will go toward scholarships for this coming summer and Summer 2024.
Every donation is appreciated. We receive amounts from $10 to hundreds of dollars. It all adds up. Don’t worry about waiting until you can give more at some point in the future. Any amount makes a difference. It’s always a wonderful surprise to visit the mailbox and hear how you’re doing and what is keeping you busy. Please keep in touch and give when you can. We love to hear from you.
