Plegecents Donors

Dear Friends of Bache-Martin supporters,

We are beyond humbled by your support in helping us not only to achieve our goal, but exceed it. With matching funds from FOBM board member and Bache-Martin parent, Nina Liou, our grand total is…$16,785!!!!

These funds put us even further along in our plans to make the book, technology and supply purchases needed to allow our library to be re-opened. We could not have done it without each and every one of you who donated (some twice!), shared our campaign on social media, and spread the word about our school. We are so excited that this dream of ours is about to be realized.

For all of us who remember how important and special our school libraries were in our own educational experiences, you can imagine how thrilled our school community is to be able to give this to our students too, now and for years to come.

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Friends of Bache-Martin, and the entire Bache-Martin school staff, students, and families, we thank you with all of our hearts!!

Philly Paper Jam Donors

Bache-Martin received a delivery of 77 cases of paper through Philly Paper Jam!  Through the generosity of 26 business and individual donors, collectively, we were able to give cases of paper to all of our teachers at this very critical time of the year when many have run out of paper and start off the new year on a really positive note.
