The Adopt-A-Classroom program gives $500 grants to teachers in the Harrisburg Area for special projects within their classrooms and schools. We have supported projects such as a garden club, classroom technology upgrades and a gaming club for our students! Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. YPOC supported 15 classrooms last year, and this year we would like to support 20! Every little bit helps. Thank you in advance for your support!
