Each year, Florence Bank donates $100,000 to community non-profits through its Community Choice grants program. Each Florence Bank account holder is eligible to vote once for the community organization of their choice. All non-profits that get 50 or more votes receive a grant.
In 2016, the ARPS PGO received 52 votes and a donation of $947.00 which was used for classroom support, special projects, and more. This year, the PGOs of the ARPS PGO (CF, WW, ARMS, & ARHS) are campaigning jointly again to maximize our votes.
Some non-profits get up to $5,000 through the program.
The ARPS PGO is urging people to vote (at least consider voting for) for the “Amherst Regional Public Schools PGO,” the name of our joint non-profit.
