May 4, 2018

PRESS RELEASE

Christian School of York Students and Scott Wagner, President & Owner of Penn Waste present checks & baked goods to Members of York City Fire Department

(York, Pa.) On May 4th, Christian School of York presented proceeds from a bake sale today in the amount of $1301.85 to David Michaels, York City Fire Chief and other members of the York City Fire Department. Scott Wagner, President & Owner of Penn Waste attended, along with wife, Tracy to present a matching check from Penn Waste. Combined with the Penn Waste match, the total was S2,603.70!

Mackenzie Parr, 8th grader at Christian School of York, was inspired to help after she passed some firefighters collecting money and learned the story about the fallen firefighters and their families. She approached her teacher who works with the Spirit Club at Christian School of York about coordinating a bake sale to benefit firefighters and their families. Mackenzie adds, “That’s what I love about this school. We can all come together and contribute to a great cause.” Part way through the bake sale, a parent was sharing with Scott Wagner how inspiring Christian School of York is and mentioned the bake sale efforts. On the spot, Scott offered Penn Waste would match the proceeds!

Ms. Loni Smith, Head of School adds, “God laid it on her heart what happened to the fire fighters and she wanted to do something and approached her teacher. They galvanized support of the Middle School Spirit Club as the hands and feet of Jesus.”

Scott Wagner took some time to talk with the Middle schoolers sharing, “It’s a big deal for our community, your care and compassion. Unfortunately, two fire fighters lost their lives. As you move through life, these are the ways you can show kindness for others. I am very proud of everything you have done.”

Members of the Spirit Club also presented some freshly baked goods for the fire fighters. For more information about Christian School of York please visit www.csyonline.com.
