PCWM Drop Off Day - Saturday May 14

BBBSCVI horizontal PURPLE

Our 2016 Drop Off Day at PCWM was a great success, collecting $1,350.00 from the generous public.  Milner group is contributing $650.00 to bring the total money raised to $2,000.00!

We would like to thank the nine Big Brothers Big Sisters volunteers who worked hard and greeted the public at the event.  We would also like to thank Kal-Tire for supplying the awesome portable BBQ, Costco for most of the food donations, and Omni Foods for their contribution as well.

 

Here are a few pictures from the event:
