Zelie Christmas event benefits disadvantaged Seneca Valley students
While most of the Christmas trees have disappeared from the curb or been boxed up and returned to the attic, the Seneca Valley School District will not soon forget the impact of one local holiday event.
The Zelienople Area Business Association’s annual “Miracle on Main Street,” held Dec. 4 in the borough, raised $5,000 for the school district’s No Cost to Shop store, where students could pick up casual clothing, shoes, job interview and formal occasion wear, accessories, hygiene products, haircut gift certificates and take-home food bags.
No Cost to Shop was available to all students in grades seven through 12, and shoppers could come individually at a pre-scheduled time to pick out their items.
The donation, made by Miracle on Main Street representatives Donna Ziegler and Adel Fatur, was accepted by Jess Pyle, Seneca Valley’s transition planning coordinator, and Michelle Eppinger, Seneca Valley’s No Cost to Shop coordinator.
