On December 16, 2018 Extended Family Care partnered with Club Cycle in support of the Homeless Children’s Education Fund (HCEF) for two charity rides. Voluntary donations were accepted at the door and riders were offered the choice of two free classes at Club Cycle, a new cycling club located in downtown Pittsburgh. Over $600 was raised in support of the Fund.
The HCEF provides multiple resources for children who are deemed homeless. Over the past year, the Fund has provided over $25000 in scholarships and $2000 in backpacks and supplies to support a fraction of the 3,500+ children in Allegheny County who reside within 43 school districts in need of assistance. The mission of the HCEF is to advance the education of children and youth experiencing homelessness, guiding them to be productive, empowered citizens.
However, further assistance is necessary to reach all the children in need. In addition to monetary donations, the Fund accepts supplies for children and families and is always thankful for volunteers and partnerships. Detailed information can be found on their website at www.homelessfund.org.
