​​​​​​​Claudia attended PCK when she was a child.  Now she is married with children of her own.  She says, "Because of PCK I had a better childhood.  It shaped me and made me the person I am today."  Claudia was one of the original group of children who attended PCK.  They met in Marcy Rogers house for games and a snack.  Over the years the leadership of PCK has evolved and changed but the mission remains the sa​me:  to promote the healthy growth and development of Payson children.

PCK was founded in the early 2000 and has been a 501c3 nonprofit since 2002. During this time it has shaped the lives of many children.  It has grown from a one-day-a-week program to its current program which matches the school district schedule and has dinner served each day.

All children who attend PCK are from "at-risk" family situations.

Feeding PCK Children

The Payson community is generous, and simply put, we couldn't do it with out you. 

Thank you!

​PCK is more than just an after-school program.  It is a place where children are valued, taught, respected, encouraged, loved, held to a standard. And that is just to start.

While your donations "pay the bills,"  they also do so much more.  PCK helps develop the character of children and encourage them to make good decisions and be kind to one another.  Your support is the foundation of impacting the lives of children for the rest of their lives.

​Thank you for being a PCK donor!

PCK has several "big ticket items" that need financial support....

PLAYGROUND Equipment, commercial dish washer, new outdoor grass for the front, replacement LED lighting for the building and others. 

Call and find out how you can become a major donor for big ticket items.
