FCASD Telethon Raises $45K for Sharpsburg Community Library

Fox Chapel Area School District students held their 30th annual telethon Friday, December 20, 2019, and raised more than $45,400.

This year’s total brings the money raised by Fox Chapel Area students and staff to more than $900,900 over the last 30 years for various local and regional charities.  

The telethon raised money for the Sharpsburg Community Library and involved students and staff from all six schools in the Fox Chapel Area School District (Fairview, Hartwood, Kerr, and O’Hara elementaries; Dorseyville Middle School; and Fox Chapel Area High School).  

The public may still make donations to the telethon here.

The telethon was coordinated by the Fox Chapel Area High School Student Government and the digital media production students of the high school, who plan and produce the event. The telethon was streamed live on the Swift Fox Media YouTube channel and can be watched at any time.

The Sharpsburg Community Library is a branch of the Cooper-Siegel Community Library and offers a full range of library services: computers for public use; new fiction; non-fiction; DVDs and books on CD; programs for adults, including art classes and book groups; and programs for children including story times, chess club, and STEAM programs.
