 2021 March Food Drive

PTCC Student Senate helped give back to our community that so generously supports Pine students through the Family Pathways Mobile Food Pantry program by organizing a food drive for the month of March. A goal of 500 items/cash was set and was surpassed by raising over 650 items/cash. Of that 650 over $550 was raised! By partnering with Family Pathways we are building a better community by fighting hunger today!
