Shop With A Jock
Patrick, with the help of Santa, hosts a festive holiday event for 50 low-income and at-risk inner city families, who would, otherwise, have a very limited Christmas, if any at all, at a Phoenix-area retailer where they receive a pre-bagged holiday meal and a unique holiday shopping experience.
Patrick hosts 250 low-income and inner city Title I middle school and high school Phoenix-area students at a local retailer where they meet Patrick and receive backpacks filled with basic, back-to-school supplies as well as clothing and shoes necessary to go back to school each August.
Pick Up A Book
Pick Up a Book is designed to bring families, schools and communities together to support children's literacy development. The program works to:
- Help families foster the skills, attitudes and behaviors that support children's literacy development
- Help schools engage families through fun, literacy-based events
- Better prepare children for reading and learning
- Support schools with their family engagement goals
The Patrick Peterson Foundation for Success will place and maintain libraries in Title I schools and inner city community centers to provide at-risk students with access to books and a safe environment to read with friends and families.
