Diverse partnerships

The board and teachers appreciate the informative article about Celebrate Diversity!

There are some additional important facts about the program that should be known. Celebrate Diversity is a non-profit educational organization in which no one is salaried; everyone is a volunteer.

The program could not exist without the continuing financial backing of our founders and supporters.

Penn State Altoona, the Altoona Mirror and The Greater Altoona Jewish Federation helped to establish the program and are still major benefactors. Sam’s Club/Wal-Mart and Reliance Bank have been benefactors for many years and Sheetz, Inc. has also been a longtime supporter, along with several individuals.

Additionally, along with Blair and Northern Bedford counties, our students also come from Cambria and Centre counties.

Celebrate Diversity! is a true community effort with invaluable results.
