Mar 2nd, 2014
ACME Markets donated $5,000 to the Philadelphia Police Athletic League to fund the PAL Positive Images program for girls ages 10-16 in Philadelphia.
“ACME has been a partner of Philadelphia PAL for over 20 years,” said Jim Perkins, ACME president. “We are happy to support a program for the young girls in our community.”
PAL’s Positive Images program offers self-esteem building and life-skills workshops that hone in on the issues young ladies deal with on an everyday basis. Adult mentors and guest speakers provide girls with the positive reinforcement needed to grow as individuals. Through this program, girls experience exciting, educational workshops covering overall health and wellness, teamwork and behavior. Workshops, run by program leaders and positive motivational guest speakers, prepare youngsters to be successful individuals in their daily lives and careers.
PAL’s Positive Images programs serves more than 400 girls in the city of Philadelphia.
