For the second year, volunteers from the Phoenix Central School TeacherÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Association will Ã¢â‚¬Å“Plunge for the PantryÃ¢â‚¬Â on Saturday, January 9, 2010. The courageous PCSTA members will jump in the frigid waters of the Oswego River at North Island in Phoenix at 1:00 p.m. The Ã¢â‚¬Å“jumpersÃ¢â‚¬Â have acquired monetary sponsors to back them in order to raise money for the Phoenix Food Pantry.
PCSTA President David Webb stated, Ã¢â‚¬Å“The local pantry has seen a significant increase in the number of families they service — up by 114! For many of our studentÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s families, the Pantry is an important resource. The PCSTA is committed to doing our part in helping keep the PantryÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s shelves stocked. I am thrilled we are able to again host the Plunge for the Pantry. We hope many will come out, bring a can to donate, and support the Pantry by watching our own Phoenix Ã¢â‚¬Å“Polar BearsÃ¢â‚¬Â jump in the river!Ã¢â‚¬Â
