Green Tree’s annual collection for Phoenixville Area Community Services has begun and will continue through July 20th.
PACS provides an emergency food supply for those in need in the Phoenixville area. They also provide emergency housing, utilities and health services. PACS assists 193 household each month. Most of the people who go to PACS for assistance are in extreme need. 84% of the food that is distributed is donated by the community. During the summer months, the need does not decrease, but donations often do.
We will be collecting everything that you might buy for your family on your weekly shopping trip – canned goods, breakfast foods, boxed goods, baking supplies and paper products are few examples. PACS also accepts monetary donations and grocery store gift cards, which are used to purchase fresh fruit and vegetables and meat.
Donation boxes have been placed under the ledge in the foyer and PACS’s “Hot List” of needed items is posted on the bulletin board.
