In just a few month's, twelve PPP staff leave for their professional study tour to Reggio Emilia, Italy!  For eighteen months, they've been busy raising money thru special kid-friendly, family events and Birthday Parties in the Atelier.

Receipts are provided to those interested in making a tax-deductible donation.
