The Pennsylvania State Snowmobile Association makes it a point to assist needy families through its Snow Angel Fund, which specifically benefits children with medical or physical challenges.
PSSA board president Elizabeth Krug was in Erie recently to present a check for $500 to Aza Burgos at the Presque Isle Snowmobile Club clubhouse.
The fund is maintained by year-round donations from many of PSSA’s more than 2,500 members.
The Snow Angel Charity was put to use to help Pennsylvania charities and children at the holidays. Twenty executive and regional directors of the PSSA distributed $200 each, or a total of $4,000.
Applications for assistance up to $500 for children under the age of 18 can be submitted to the regional director in the area of the child’s residence or to PSSA at 908 North Second St., Harrisburg, PA 17102. Eligible families may apply for Snow Angel donations through a letter of application including the child’s name and a description of the special needs, circumstances or conditions that prevent the parents or guardians from satisfying these needs. Requests are then forwarded to the Snow Angels Charity Committee for consideration.
The director for Region 1, which includes Erie, Crawford and Warren counties, is Lisa Vallimont, who can be reached at email@example.com or (814) 825-8112.
