Fundraisers

Every year, AB PIP STEM holds two Fundraisers, a winter skate and spring book sale. 

Family Skate
Annual Family Skate FUNdraiser

20th Annual AB Community Skate FUNdraiser Thank You

The 20th Annual Community Skate FUNdraiser hosted by AB PIP STEM and area families on March 3 was another great success. Thank you to all who contributed and supported this annual community-building event which raised over $1,000 for local causes plus food pantry & donations for Acton Housing families. ALL of the proceeds benefited Acton Area Food Pantries (Open Table capital campaign, Acton Community Supper, Loaves and Fishes), AB PIP STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) resources (3DuxDesign STEM kit, ‘Dear Data’ book, the AB Photo Contest/Eye Tracking project), eco donations (A Plastic Ocean DVD + the 2019 PIP STEM Book Club read ‘Sustainability A Love Story’ to Acton Citizen & Memorial Library) and Wellness (ABUW ‘AB Cares’ for AB suicide awareness & prevention & AB Drive In Control Teen Driver Training). Attendees also brought food pantry items and personal care donations.
