Carmen B. Pingree
Pingree Parent Staff Association
The parents and staff of Carmen B. Pingree are committed to
helping find ways to fund their school.
Over the years the staff of the Carmen B. Pingree School (CBP) have gone to other states to train teachers and professionals on the programs at CBP so other children with autism have the same opportunity for education and therapy as our kids do. The staff earned $75,000 doing this over those many years, and donated the entire amount towards the construction of the school. As a result, the staff lounge is named in their honor.
The parents also have several fundraisers that have earned thousands towards the construction of the school and the classroom programs. The parents have an inventory of T-shirts, sweat shirts, ball caps, tote-bags, and greeting cards for sale.
During the University of Utah football season the parent spend their time at the parking lot of the Carmen C. Pingree (located just a few blocks from Rice Eccles Stadium). They collect a $5 donation from football fans that want a great place to park and can get a tax-deductible donation at the same time!
You can also purchase a "Pave the Way" brick for yourself or a loved one. There are over 3000 "Pave the Way" bricks located around the flagpole at the school. You can visit the school to see those who have supported the school in that manner. For more details about the "Pave the Way" bricks contact Valley Mental Health Foundation at (801) 255-9519.
