The nonprofit foundation’s mission is to provide for and enhance educational opportunities in the Greencastle-Antrim community.

Science in Motion was almost stopped in its tracks this year because of a 60 percent cut in state funding. That cut jeopardized a program that provides modern scientific equipment and professional development opportunities to approximately one-dozen school districts in Berks, Lancaster, Lebanon and Schuylkill counties. But a $15,000 donation from Phillips Office Solutions will help to keep Science in Motion’s royal blue Honda Element – with yellow DNA strands on each side – on the road. “Basically, Phillips Office Solutions saved our program for the second half of the school year,” said Wendy Martin, director of Science in Motion at Elizabethtown College. “We would have had to severely cut back on services or possibly not run the last few months of the school year because our funding from the state would have run out.” Statewide, a consortium of 12 colleges and universities provides Science in Motion programs to more than 200 school districts. Elizabethtown College has been involved since the 2008-09 school year, operating Science in Motion out of its Center for Community and Civic Engagement. Science in Motion provides free use of equipment and materials that school districts neither could afford nor would have need for at all times during the school year. After surveying high school science teachers, Martin purchased bio-technology equipment from their wish lists. Martin delivers the equipment to the schools and even helps team teach classes if requested. Peter Phillips, president of Phillips Office Solutions, said Science in Motion was an investment worth making because it saves taxpayer dollars in the long run. “It would not be practical for each school district to purchase this equipment,” Phillips said, “but it is of great value for science students to have the kinds of hands-on experiences that this equipment provides.”

Because of budget cuts, the Carlisle Area School District’s annual back-to-school staff luncheon was in jeopardy. But The Phillips Group stepped in with a $2,500 donation, saving the event this year for some 400 staff members. “This luncheon has become a highlight of getting the school year off on the right foot,” said Tom Longenecker, the school district’s director of finance. “We’re very grateful that The Phillips Group was able to cover that cost for us this year.”

WITH MAY 4 ‘DOCUMENT DESTRUCTION FOR DOWNTOWN’ EVENTApril 18, 2011
We’re on the eve of destruction. That is, a fundraiser called “Document Destruction for Downtown York.” Phillips Office Solutions, central Pennsylvania’s leading independent office products company, will park its secure shredding truck outside this year’s York County Chamber Business & Technology Expo. The expo is May 4 in the Toyota Arena at the York Expo Center.
From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., visitors to the business expo can bring bags and boxes of documents in need of shredding to Phillips’ truck. Phillips will charge $5 to shred the first box or bag and $1 for each additional box or bag (up to 35 pounds).
All proceeds will benefit Downtown Inc (www.downtownyorkpa.org), a nonprofit that works to revitalize and foster reinvestment in downtown York.
“We are grateful to Phillips Office Solutions for recognizing our efforts in downtown York and creating this fun event to benefit Downtown Inc,” said Sonia Huntzinger, executive director of Downtown Inc.
One type of paper that visitors won’t want to shred: their business cards. They can be dropped in a bowl at the shredding truck for a chance to win a $100 gift card to White Rose Bar & Grill in York.
Phillips, which has an office in downtown York, recently unveiled the shredding truck, which can process up to 3,200 pounds of documents per hour.
