Phoenix Afterschool Center (PAC):
PAC is an affordable afterschool recreation and enrichment program provided by the Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department. Under the supervision of professional recreation staff, elementary school children participate in a variety of age-appropriate activities that are fun, healthy, and instructive. PAC’s focus is to serve Phoenix children in neighborhoods of highest need, where access to safe and affordable afterschool options is not otherwise available.
In the past two years, reductions to the Parks & Recreation general fund budget reduced PAC afterschool services from nearly 100 sites serving more than 10,000 children to 30 locations serving 2,200 children.
In 2011 Circle K Corporation became PAC’s first corporate sponsor with a commitment of $36,000 to the Phoenix Parks Foundation to restore PAC at Sunnyslope Elementary School.
Your corporate or individual contribution to the Phoenix Parks Foundation assists Parks and Recreation with its goal for PAC kids to be happy, healthy, make friends and learn new things–key ingredients that help children to become the healthy, positively engaged adults who are Phoenix’s future.
