Support the PEP Foundation by eating at PDQ on March 5

PDQ fundraiser flier Community Consolidated School District 89 is hosting a family benefit night at the PDQ restaurant, 167 Danada Square, Wheaton, from 4 to 10 p.m. on Tuesday, March 5. All proceeds from the event will go to the CCSD 89 PEP Fund, which supports teachers and students. 

Anyone who visits PDQ between 4 and 10 p.m. on March 5 should tell the staff they are supporting District 89 when they make a purchase at the drive thru or while dining in. A portion of every purchase will be donated to the PEP Fund.

The Partnership for Educational Progress (PEP) is a charitable foundation that works with Glenbard School District 87 and its feeder elementary districts to provide enrichment opportunities for all students. Earlier this school year, the PEP Foundation awarded grants worth $1,500 to four projects that will help CCSD 89 students develop financial awareness, manage their anxiety, improve handwriting, and understand resource scarcity.
