Parents of young children in my community who are unable to afford the full cost of day care, greatly benefit from programs like the Penn's Way Campaign. By being able to specifically target the recipient, I'm assured more of my contribution dollars go directly towards a cause I feel needs my support. Through the Penn's Way Campaign, I'm able to give directly to my neighborhood day care center. As toddlers, each of my three children developed a solid educational foundation at the Jane D. Kent Day Care Center.

In a streamlined campaign--designed to take less time on the calendar by starting later and finishing sooner, and to take less time away from staff by dispensing with the coordinator structure--the 1996 Penn's Way reported contributions of $17,460 from 215 participants in its first week (see Almanac November 21/28) and now shows 641 participants whose gifts exceed $156,000. Anyone who has not received the '96 guidebook explaining options in giving can call 898-1733.
