Playground & Capital Projects Committee

Through a generous donation from AmeriHealth Mercy Foundation and Wells Fargo, FoCA erected a small playground for the students in 2011. We are now raising money for a $2.5 million school and community park, designed by OLIN Landscape Architects, to transform the entire schoolyard. We work continuously to make this plan a reality. 

Community Events & Outreach

FoCA partners with the South of South Neighborhood Association and local businesses to organize events and work hand-in-hand with our surrounding community for the benefit of the school.  In the past, we have successfully executed events such as our 50-50 block parties and FoCA Night Out, which have allowed us to fund a number of fantastic programs at the school.  The Community Events & Outreach committee also administers Little Friends of Chester Arthur, which organizes group playdates for kids who are not yet old enough to attend Chester Arthur.
