UHS PTO Used Book Sale - Volunteers Needed

This year's Annual UHS PTO Used Book Sale will be held on Friday, February 23rd and Saturday, February 24th.  The Used Book Sale is a community event and everyone is welcome. If you do not have a student in the High School, your help would still be appreciated as we prepare for our largest fundraiser of the year.  There are volunteer shifts scheduled throughout the weeks leading up to the day of the sale.  A variety of day and evening volunteer hours are offered to make helping with this event easy and fun for everyone. No prior experience is necessary!  This is a great way to meet new people, connect with friends, or spend time while waiting for your student's practice to end vs driving home and back in the cold. Every little bit of help is vital to the success of the sale.

2018 Used Book Sale Preparation and Sale Volunteers: Now through  February 23th /24th.  Many student and adult volunteers will be needed during the weeks that lead up to the actual event and for set up and sale on February 23rd and 24th.

UCF Community Scholarship Fund

For over 50 years, the Unionville-Chadds Ford Community Scholarship Fund has provided scholarship aid to outstanding graduating seniors at Unionville High School.

The Community Scholarship is a grant of a stated amount of money collected annually from the school community by open solicitation. Its purpose is to award the worthy student who wishes to continue his/her education following graduation from Unionville High School. The grant is for the first year of post-secondary work only and will be applied toward college costs (i.e., tuition, room and board). As many grants will be made annually as the treasury of the Community Scholarship can support. Please consider contributing to the Unionville-Chadds Ford Community Scholarship Fund.Thanks to you overwhelming generosity last year we were fortunate to present 8 graduating seniors each with a $1,000 scholarship award.

NO AMOUNT IS TOO SMALL!

You can have your student drop off the donation to the High School Office in an envelope marked UCF Community Scholarship. We accept cash or check made payable to UCF Community Scholarship Fund.
