Each year at PMC we choose several local charities to benefit, as part of our gift to the community. We give both monetary gifts and items to help them complete their missions. We hope you’ll join us!
How can you help those groups?
• We invite you to contribute to our Spirit of Giving Fund with the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation. All contributions are tax-deductible. You can simply write a check to Spirit of Giving Fund and drop off/send to our office at 1000 Grand Central Mall, Vienna, WV 26105. OR: you may give online, at www.pacfwv/spiritofgivingfund. We will then match your cash donations given by December 5th and give those contributions to the charities at our Spirit of Giving celebration.
• Following, you’ll see our recipients, and their Wish Lists. Your group may collect items for a wish list of your choosing, and bring to our office no later than December 6th. (Call us to arrange at 304/485-8000)
• In addition, we are selling raffle tickets to benefit the fund. We’re raffling five prizes, including a Myrtle Beach trip, $1000 bracelet, deluxe Pirates package and more, for only $5! If you would enjoy purchasing/selling raffle tickets, please email email@example.com to have those delivered to you.
We feel this is a meaningful way to celebrate the Christmas season, and we believe you will, as well. Please join us in a spirit of giving, and let’s make the holidays brighter for these hard-working organizations and those they serve!
