fOnce again, the PCC Foundation is raising money to support the college’s Panther Pantries for Giving Tuesday (Nov. 27). With a goal of $10,000, organizers are asking that people participate in this event by donating to “Save a Seat: So Hunger Doesn’t Hold Our Students Back” drive.

“Save a Seat” refers to this year’s Faculty, Staff and Retiree Campaign. When a gift is made, the donation helps “save a seat” for students in the classroom, in the cafeteria and on the bus. It’s needed because nearly 67% of PCC student face food insecurity and the Panther Pantries help serve these students by providing healthy, fresh and non-perishable food items and hygiene supplies.

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
