THANK YOU!

A huge THANK YOU to the Parker Lee Foundation (PLF) for the generous donation of $15,000 in proceeds from its 2014 PBR 10K event!

Directions for Youth & Families has been the beneficiary of generosity from PLF's largest annual event for the past five years. PLF members developed a heart for giving to DFYF's after school prevention programs after they parked cars at Short Stop fundraising events when they were in college. They have grow this annual event each year, with the 2014 PBR 10K attracting approximately 1,100 attendees!

The PLF board members pictured above presented the $15,000 check at DFYF's March Executive Committee meeting and then visited Short Stop to share the good news with Chp Smith, who was the original DFYF person with whom they worked.

Thanks to the Parker Lee Foundation for the remarkable ways they touch and change the lives of young people in our community through their generosity!
