The Impact Foundation (IF), a student committee of the York Suburban Education Foundation (YSEF) formed in the fall of 2015. In December of that same year, IF was awarded a $4,926 grant from the York County Community Foundation’s (YCCF) Strategic Community Grant Program in support of IF’s Impact of Caring project.
The Impact of Caring grant assisted in constructing Impact Closets within all six of the York Suburban School District buildings. The Impact Closets provide basic supplies for students attending each school. IF also secured startup funds for stocking the closets with supplies through the Jeffrey D. Sindicich Foundation, and from a private contribution from Carolyn F. Warman. The Sindicich Foundation was created in memory of Jeffrey Sindicich, a 1986 York Suburban graduate.
COMMUNITY SUPPORT In August of 2016, ten York Suburban High School students involved with the Impact Foundation (IF) met at East York Elementary School to build an Impact Closet. The closet is stocked with free school supplies, clothes, and hygiene items to benefit the growing population of students experiencing a difficult time meeting their basic needs.
