Peter Pan and the Picknelly family have had a long tradition of community service and philanthropic generosity dating back three generations.
Peter and Melissa are continuing that tradition by establishing the Peter and Melissa Picknelly Charitable Fund, supporting a wide range of causes ranging from shelters for battered women and the homeless … to the United Way, the arts and many other civic causes. Both the Peter and Melissa Picknelly Charitable Fund and the Peter Pan Group of Companies are committed to improving the communities they serve.
The UConn Huskies racked up their 8th Women’s NCAA Final Four college basketball championship on Tuesday, April 9th, besting Louisville 93 to 60. When the team returned to the Storrs campus the next day, Peter Pan’s Double Decker Coach was front and center among more than 2000 fans who celebrated on the plaza in front of the Gampel Pavilion. In this photo from the AP’s Jessica Hill, UConn’s Stefanie Dolson proudly raises this year’s trophy.

For Red Sox fans, nothing compares to being at the ballpark for the home opener. And for scores of the Fenway Faithful, Monday, April 8th was no exception. More than 50 local fans climbed aboard the Peter Pan Sports motorcoach to watch the home team notch a 3 to 1 victory over the Baltmore Orioles.
The Republican newspaper’s Patrick Johnson reported on the excursion, interviewing several fans who sang the praises of taking Peter Pan to the park. “You can relax on the bus,” said Enfield’s John Unghire. “You don’t have to worry about driving back afterward.” And of course, taking the bus means not dealing with game day traffic in The Hub. What’s more, as reporter Johnson noted, the ticket package through Peter Pan Sports is less than the cost of purchasing a ticket, paying for gas and paying for parking. It all adds up to an enjoyable, carefree day on Yawkey Way.

Under the guidance of coach William Shepard, the boys achieved a dramatic 50 – 48 overtime win against Eastern Massachusetts champions Mansfield. “We’re bringing this back to Springfield,” said the coach. “As a city, we can build on this to continue to do good things for Springfield.”
Doing good things for Springfield has been an 80 year tradition at Peter Pan Bus Lines. Peter Pan was proud to be there for Putnam as they accomplished this momentous achievement for the school and for the city
Valley Gives is a one-of-a-kind celebration of generosity for Western Massachusetts. Residents from Hampden, Hampshire and Franklin counties came together on 12-12-12 for a special online campaign event in which people made a donation to their local non-profit of choice. The 24-hour philanthropic fund-raising campaign was able to get very close to their $1 million goal by raising a total of $974,737. The success of this campaign will allow hundreds of nonprofits in Western Massachusetts to benefit and will have a positive impact on the members of our community.
Valley Gives, online giving campaign, is a partnership led by the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts. The Peter and Melissa Picknelly Charitable Foundation donated $7,500 to the Valley Gives campaign efforts. Peter Pan was able to give back by helping to promote the 12-12-12 Valley Gives day on their social media pages as well as on their electronic highway billboard. Valley Gives staff helped spread the word throughout the pioneer valley yesterday while traveling on our Peter Pan VIP bus. Congratulations to the team at Valley Gives on their successful efforts in raising money that will assist non-profits throughout the area.
The Penn National Gaming Foundation and the Peter and Melissa Picknelly Charitable Fund teamed up to give a $25,000 donation to the Square One Early Education and Care Center.
Santa Clause traveled by Peter Pan red double decker bus on his visit to see the children of Square One to drop off the $25,000 check.
Square One is based in Springfield and experienced damage to one of their day care centers in the June tornado and most recently the November 24th gas explosion that occurred at Worthington and Chestnut streets.
The Picknelly Charitable Fund and Penn National Gaming Foundation wanted to do something in order to help the local daycare and the members of our community as well as put a smile on the faces of the children excited to receive a visit from Santa.
I would like to express my sincere appreciation on behalf of the HALO Program and its students for your generous donation to Link to Libraries.
As you know we are an Adult Education Program located on the third floor in the Picknelly Education Center in Holyoke. Susan Jaye-Kaplan and Link to Libraries have provided us with enough books to stock a small library at our program. This is an invaluable resource for the students. We encourage our adult students to read and to further strengthen their skills and family bonding by reading with their children.
For the most part our students do not have the means to purchase reading materials on their own. Without donations such as yours we would be unable to provide books for our students and their families.
Thank you again for your support in encouraging literacy to families in Holyoke.
