PBYR proudly participated in the Greenwood Elementary School Community Service Program on Feb. 9, 2018. This was our 2nd participation and we have been invited back for next year! The student and parents were again super and they were very generous with the following donations:
- $400.00 Holiday Gift cards
- $400.00 Cub Gift cards
- The students wrote letters and drew beautiful pictures for service members.
The gift card donations will be used to assist service members and their families and such donated gifts are very helpful to the PBYR mission. The Family Assistance Center will locate a deployed service member or Chaplain to receive the pictures to distribute.
**Kudos to Kersten Beckstrom for her PBYR leadership and participation during the event as an art coach, table supervisor, PR Specialist and PBYR Volunteer- Par- Excellence!
“Si” , a 5th grader served as our assistant and he did a super job at the event!!

PBYR Sincerely Thanks the Greenwood Students, Parents and Staff for the Donation of $350.00 in Gift Cards!!!!
We greatly appreciated the invitation to participate in Community Service Night at Greenwood Elementary School on December 8, 2017. Jennifer and I saw that Greenwood is a school that is clearly doing very well! The students and their parents were delightful and there was a lot of positive energy present! Kristen Miller, Editor from Sun Sailor also came to the event and will write an article with pictures.
The students drew beautiful pictures and wrote very nice letters to soldiers which we will forward to the Family Assistance Center (FAC) in Arden Hills to send to soldiers needing a boost. Additionally, the parents and students donated $350.00 in gift cards for food, gas and personal items which will be used in emergency requests for service and assistance for veterans, service members or their families that contact PBYR directly or that are identified by a member of the PBYR network or through our partnership with the Plymouth Police Department or Heinzen Ditter VFW. The PBYR Treasurer will be given the cards for safe storage until needed!!
