Ellen J. Reich, SPFS Donor

There is a story behind the somewhat unusual enclosed donation.   In 1975 my grandmother gave me a $500 Series E Savings Bond.  It’s been sitting in a safe ever since.  I kept wondering what I wanted to buy with it, wanting it to be something that reminded me of my mother and her mother.

After watching Brooklyn Castle [the 2013 Shalom Park Freedom School movie fundraiser] I suddenly realized The Freedom School at Shalom Park is the perfect place for that money.  My mother, especially, valued education and was committed to quality education for all. Please accept the enclosed $2,663.00 in memory of Esther Przygucki and Lucretia Reich.
