St Peter’s preschool fall project

Thrive & Grit

This year for our St. Peter’s Preschool Fall Community Service Project, we chose to focus on health and wellness by supporting Thrive & Grit. Thrive & Grit is an organization that our preschool staff feels close to, as it was created by and for a family that has been very involved with our program over the years. Megan (a parent) and Jacquelyn (one of our teachers) are sisters who were born and raised in Lancaster PA. Megan was diagnosed with breast cancer just 5 days after her 30th birthday and 9 months after giving birth to her beautiful baby boy (a past student), in 2016.

Jacquelyn and Megan were inspired to help other women by creating awareness, assisting with prevention, supporting those battling, and donating to research. This October and November we will be collecting items for patient’s goodie bags. These bags will be donated to the Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Institute for patients undergoing treatment. Please consider dropping some items off at our Preschool entrance or by the office window for Thrive & Grit’s goodie bags. To learn more about Thrive & Grit please visit –
