  • Did you know food donations decline dramatically during the busy summer months but this is actually the greatest time of need for local families facing hunger? Good thing you can help!

  • Good morning PCTI! Think back to when you were a kid and were granted with plenty of gifts and your wishes came true. Now, think about kids that do not have that desired time, but are rather grasping onto life every second of every day. The Make A Wish Foundation helps grant wishes to kids that are suffering with critical illnesses. So please, I urge you, let’s help kids like Chris with leukemia! Make a donation and help make wishes come true! Be that shooting star we only see in the movies! Thank you and have a beautiful day :)
