Valentine's Week at PVMS

Sponsored by EarlyAct Council

Powdersville Patriots Give Back!

Our EarlyAct Council will be sponsoring several fundraisers next week, February 8-12. All money raised will benefit a local non-profit organization, the Cancer Association of Anderson. The Cancer Association of Anderson was founded in March 2013 by a group of cancer survivors, health care professionals, and community leaders to improve the quality of life for cancer patients, survivors, and their families living in Anderson County.


The Cancer Association of Anderson depends on donations and fundraiser to provide:


  • up to $1000/year for treatment related expenses,
  • "Wig and Hat Room" which provides wigs, hats, and scarves free of charge,
  • Emotional support through support groups and free enrollment in AnMed's Oncology Rehab program,
  • Connection to other cancer survivors,
  • Referral to services which will benefit the cancer patient, survivor, and families,
  • Loans and assistance with durable medical equipment.

HOW will we raise money?

Students have the opportunity to purchase "Send-A-Kiss" Valigrams for their friends. Valigrams - small bags of Hersey Kisses - may be purchased during lunch periods through February 9 for only $1. Valigrams will be delivered on Friday. Parents and/or grandparents are welcome to come by the office to purchase a SURPRISE "Kiss" for their child(ren)!

AND...

The Valentine's Dance will be held on Friday, February 12 from 3:00 - 5:00. Admission is $5 for all students. Concessions will be sold and a photo booth will be available. All money raised will benefit the Cancer Association of Anderson.

And there's MORE...

Students will pay $3 on Monday to participate in dress-up days for the week. Let's reach for 100% participation. Remember...it's all to support the Cancer Association of Anderson!
