PEA gives locally sourced care packages to union members Friday

The people are missing but not the love and Perry Pride as the Perry Education Association hands out care packages to members Friday.

The Perry Education Association (PEA) distributed locally produced care packages to its members Friday morning outside the Perry Performing Arts Center at Perry High School.

The springtime-colored gift bags, purchased from Ben’s Five and Dime, were filled with cookies from the local Girl Scout Troop, candy bars from the Perry Middle School band and choir, gift certificates from Perry Perk coffeehouse and spring bouquets and plants from Harper Rose’s Floral and Gift.

“We are working hard to provide support in a variety of ways during this challenging time,” said PEA President Jenn Nelson, “for our students, PCSD essential staff, families and our teacher members.”

Nelson said the PEA is also offering mini-grants of up to $50 to members to help cover expenses related to teaching from home during the time of the pandemic.
