PCF Programs

Huggy Bears Program

 

Each month, a small volunteer group constructs, sews, stuffs, and delivers 30 soft, cuddly bears to Venice Regional Bayfront Health Center to be presented to children who arrive at the Emergency Room needing some comfort.  Volunteers are needed for this program, if you are available call the PCF office.  No experience necessary!

Box Tops for Education

 

This program helps the Taylor Ranch School with cash or merchandise.  Simply clip Box Tops for Education labels and turn them in to the PCF office (preferred) or in the envelope hanging on the bulletin board in the Ladies’ Locker Room.  This is a great way to give back from items your already have on hand.

Winners:  Bob & Joanne August, Byron Hill, Norma Noyes, John Hardenbergh, Pat Richards.
