Press Release: Pressley Ridge Families Helped by Ambridge School Students

Ambridge Area High SchoolBEAVER FALLS-Many Pressley Ridge families in Beaver County had a happier winter through the efforts of students and parents at Ambridge Area High School. Students with the Ambridge Service Learning Center and Interact Clubs solicited parents and school staff to make donations to an angel tree, raising funds for food for these families. About 130 students in grades nine through 12, including AP English and European History classes sponsored Thanksgiving dinners for 19 families which included seven Pressley families and purchased Christmas gifts for 32 children.

Pressley Ridge Home-based Services in Beaver Falls serves children and adolescents in Beaver County who have mental health/mental retardation needs. “Our families devote their emotional and financial resources to caring for these children and they truly appreciated the holiday dinners,” said Michele Conner, director of Pressley Ridge, Beaver County. “We thank the students of Ambridge for their generosity.”

The school’s Interact Club works with the local Rotary Club on community service projects. The Student Service-Learning Center combines service to the community with student learning in a way that improves both the student and the community. One of 17 programs in the state, SSLC is funded by grants from Learn and Serve America, a program of the National Corporation for Service.
