About Us


How We're Helping

We are the Athletic Booster Club for Peru Community Schools in Peru, Indiana. We have a poverty rate that is  over 75% in our school system. It is our mission to remove those financial obstacles that stand in the way of our student athletes. We help all sports incuding cheerleading. We also reward scholarships in the spring. We believe in our student atheletes and all the proceeds we raise goes 100% back to them. Our officers and members receive no compensation for the work we do. Thank you for your support!
