Support for York High School

Foundation receives close to $15,000 to support Duke Depot

The District 205 Foundation received a very generous donation from the Elmhurst community group 100+ Women Who Care this February to support York's Duke Depot. This program exists to provide personal items, school supplies, and clothing for students that need assistance. These funds will also help York's Student Council to provide identified new  students with a back pack containing school supplies and book store gift  card. The number of students requiring support for these basic needs continues to grow, and this donation will provide help several years out so that students can come prepared and ready to engage in their education.
