In addition to volunteering, we love to hear how people and/or businesses get creative and fundraise for us, for example, the Pickerington Education Association recently held a Dollar Drive in conjunction with the end of the school year. Participants were able to bring in a dollar amount and wear a hat, or jeans, etc. on designated days, they raised over $1,200!! The local school bus company held a chili cook-off and collected $1 per vote. They raised $300!! You could consider holding a dollar drive and helping the Food Pantry in that way or you can get creative and host a diaper drive or deodorant and shampoo drive, school supplies drive, etc. (please check with us at the time to ask about current and specific needs).  Another option is for teams to collect donations for every goal or basket made during the season.

Monetary donations are always appreciated. Mail check to P.O. Box 914 or donate using PayPal  For every $1 donated, the PCMA Food Pantry can purchase $11 worth of groceries. Please feel free to contact us if you have any ideas.
