Donation Drive to Kilimanjaro

Help give the gift of education and empowerment to kids on the other side of the globe! We will be collecting clean, new or gently used clothing, shoes, books, and school supplies to send to Kilimanjaro, Tanzania. The organization Make a Difference Now funds education through college for orphaned children whose parents died of AIDS, hunger, or other causes. Our donations will help these students put poverty behind them forever with the right to a good education!

PCC Reads

To continue connecting with the themes of immigration and diversity, check out this year's PCC Reads selection, Girl In Translation by Jean Kwok. Look for events throughout the year as we encourage a campus conversation about the important themes identified in this book!
