Peachjar Reaches Philanthropic Milestone – $2 Million to K-12 Programs

Leave a comment

When Peachjar opened its doors in 2011 , it set out on a mission to change the trajectory of children’s lives. Part of doing that, was allowing children the opportunity to learn about enriching programs in their community. While some of those programs were being communicated to parents via paper flyers being sent home in students’ backpacks, others were free programs that lacked the funds required to reach parents. Peachjar allowed these programs to distribute their flyers locally free of charge through its philanthropy program.

Since its inception, Peachjar has donated $2 million in flyer distributions to worthwhile programs that offer free resources to students and parents, like the FLSE Fire Prevention Program. Fire Prevention Officer Diane Woods says, “I am so excited that we can access this valuable tool to help save lives. If we save one life through this network, it doesn’t get any better.” As well as Evangelism Fellowship’s Good News Club, who uses Peachjar to promote its annual food drive which serves 1,100 households each month. Their representative commented that, “Peachjar has helped many, many families!”

We’re proud to be able to help these wonderful programs reach their full potential, and to ensure that parents know about all the great programs in their community! In honor of Veteran’s Day, we’d like to say a special thank you to those who have served and continue to serve. Below is one of the many flyers in support of veterans that was shared through Peachar for free.
