RPCVs NENY Fundraiser and Virtual Screening of the Peace Corps Story

RPCVs NENY Fundraiser and Virtual Screening of the Peace Corps Story

RPCVs of NENY is hosting a screening of the film, “A Towering Task: The Story of The Peace Corps” from September 4- October 5, 2020. During that time, you can buy a ticket for $10 which then allows you to view the film virtually over 72 hours/3 days!

When you buy a ticket, 50% of the proceeds go straight to the RPCVs of NENY so that the group can continue to support important projects. Not only is this a great opportunity to spread the Peace Corps story and highlight its value today, this is also a way to help fill the group’s fundraising gap created by COVID-19 and allow RPCVs of NENY to continue supporting projects.

Members of RPCVs of NENY are encouraged to spread the word and share this event flyer: RPCVs NENY Peace Corps Story
