PSD Partnerships and Volunteers

Partnerships with schools and students benefit everyone

The PSD Partnership Center connects local businesses, community organizations and volunteers to schools and teachers to support and enhance student learning, work experiences and community involvement. 

By collaborating with each other, we help students be successful in and out of the classroom, while creating a skilled future workforce and caring community members.That's a win-win for all! 

 

Laurel students raise more than $1,200 to help people facing homelessness

Adelina Massa and Katelyn Nessenthaler might only be in fourth grade, but they are already changing the world. 

The two students recently spearheaded a fundraising campaign at their school to support Homeward Alliance, a Colorado-based organization that serves people and families facing homelessness. The girls encouraged students across the school to make donations, and in less than five weeks, they raised more than $1,200 – enough money, it turns out, to cover a rental deposit for someone experiencing a housing crisis.

These efforts include donating food to families in need, collecting holiday presents and service projects across the community. Here is a sampling of some of these phenomenal efforts by the PSD community:
