The History of the
Palmyra Community Center
Western Presbyterian Church
As was recently announced, the Palmyra Community Center recently received a $55,300 grant from the Bullis Fund of the Rochester Area Community Foundation. The initial grant of $35,000, which has been received, will go to support a walkway from Campbell Park to the Community Center, the purchase of two new Arc Trainers machines for our Cardio Room, and add much needed extra storage space in our building. It will also help in sponsoring those youth in our communities, who would not otherwise be able to attend this year Summer Playground and Kids Kamp programs.
The remaining $20,300 is in the form of a Matching Grant based on received contributions.
For every contribution the PCC receives, the Bullis Fund will match that amount dollar for dollar.
Listed below are items that we’re seeking funding for, with your support.
___ New yoga mats & equipment for our Senior Citizen Silver Sneakers classes and other adult programs.
___ New pieces equipment for our Cardio Fitness Room so that we can continue to provide, and offer, our fitness center members modern and updated equipment to suit their workout needs.
___ New computers, with free public access, for our Resource Center.
___ Personal training program, with the PCC’s personal trainer Crofton Celentano, offered to (20) individuals, (8) session each at no cost, who need a physical regimen and nutritional program to create a healthier lifestyle, but do not have the financial means to do so at their own expense. It will also provide physical rehab for
individuals who in need of it, but either cannot commute to or afford another location.
___ General contribution. You will let the PCC designate your contribution where they best see fit to do so.
We have listed the above items in case there is one specific item or area that you would like to specifically designate for your contribution. If you choose to do this, please number them in order of your preference with 1 being your highest choice.
