  • Planting Seeds of Community

    Wanted to take a moment to thank Sean Acosta for all of his efforts to raise money for and awareness of the PeerPals.org mission.  Sean was honored as our Community Champion at our 8th Annual Planting Seeds of Community Dinner on April 12, at the Jericho Terrace.  This fundraising dinner provides 85% of the funding for our program.  Thanks to all of our donors who provided the items for our raffle and silent auction.  Also, many thanks to our supporters who come back year after year to make the Planting Seeds of Community dinner a success!

  • Thank you, Marc Gerber

    It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of Marc Gerber, a long time member of our Board of Directors. Marc was a kind man who shared his time and talents with our organization in many ways. His expertise as an attorney served the organization well when writing our by-laws and negotiating the lease on our office space. Marc helped shape the vision of PeerPals.org as we grew and could always be counted on to lend a hand or give an encouraging word. I feel incredibly blessed to have had the opportunity to know and work with him. Our deepest sympathy goes out to his family.
