KOP Cares is commitment to our community

 

King of Prussia District is proud to support charity and nonprofit organizations serving our community. While we are involved in many programs that transform public spaces, foster economic growth and drive business to the area, KOP Cares is our way of giving back to those in need and celebrating other businesses and organizations in KOP that do the same.

Know of a business giving back to our community?  Let us know!

Community Champions

King of Prussia is home to over 4,000 companies that employ more than 60,000 employees.  In 2020, King of Prussia District considered the impact that could be made if even just some of these companies rallied together around a cause, and launched the Community Champions Program in conjunction with KOP Restaurant Week and KOP Shops for CHOP.

Through the Community Champions Program, companies join the generous restaurants and retailers that pledge their support to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) by making a donation through this campaign, participating in KOP Dress Down Day to benefit CHOP or hosting their own fundraiser with their employees or customers.  The business community has truly embraced the Community Champion program and CHOP’s mission, and we expect that it will continue to grow as the years go on.

Annual Holiday Food Drive

Each year during the holiday season, King of Prussia District is proud to produce a holiday food drive to benefit the Upper Merion Area Community Cupboard (UMACC).  Located in the Valley Forge Presbyterian Church, UMACC is a 501(c)3 food pantry open to anyone who lives within the bounds of the Upper Merion Area School District (UMASD) and is hungry or food insufficient. Currently, 110 families with children in district schools are served by UMACC. The families are not our only food insufficient neighbors, but are joined in this place of need by many other children, working adults, and seniors.

UMACC is a collaborative and empathetic community response to strengthening our most vulnerable neighbors, with King of Prussia businesses, residents, faith communities, clubs and associations supporting UMACC throughout the year by making donations in the form of cash or supplies, or volunteering their time.

First Responders Appreciation Week

King of Prussia is a compassionate community, ripe with strength, pride and support for each other. No group exemplifies these qualities as much as our first responders.

With its inaugural event in 2020, this annual week-long event honors our community’s first responders with complimentary meals from some of King of Prussia’s finest restaurants.

Scholarships & Teacher Grants

The Upper Merion Area School District Scholarship Fund began in the fall of 1990, and is supported by tax-deductible contributions made by businesses, industry, civic and service individuals, as well as donations from private citizens. Since the first awards ceremony (known as Ivy Day) in 1991, over $494,000 has been awarded to students based on financial need, academic record and extracurricular activities. King of Prussia District has supported the Scholarship Fund since 2018, donating $22,500, and urges other businesses to join us in investing in our future leaders.

The Upper Merion Area Educational Foundation (UMAEF) is committed to the continuing advancement of public education in the school district by providing funds for educational activities and programs through engagement and collaboration with parents, school staff, community members and businesses. Through an application process, teachers are given grants for projects that supplement and complement basic educational programs in the areas of Technology, Arts, Scholastic Enhancement and Cultural Enrichment.

Quenchers Give Back in KOP

Quench USA is committed to improving the environment and local communities. Over the past several months, Quench has jumped at the opportunity to give back. In May 2021, Quench volunteered with Small Things Philly, a non-profit that works with Philabundance to fight hunger in the Philadelphia region. Together, the team packed over 1,500 food boxes and stacked 28 pallets. Then in early August, Quench took part in a watershed cleanup with the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy. A team of over 50 Quenchers spent a few hours removing plastic bottles, tires, electronics, rusty nails, and other debris from the Schuylkill River Trail.
