Your gift today will bring hope during the holidays to a family struggling to meet food and health care needs.

GIVE HOPE ON GIVING TUESDAY

DECEMBER 1, 2015

While the economy has improved and unemployment has eased, thousands of families are struggling with new barriers such as skyrocketing rent and low wages. Some have even become homeless and are living out of their cars, or worse. As the temperatures chill, please consider making a gift today, even if you're too late for Giving Tuesday. Through PACS, you can make a huge impact for someone who cannot afford adequate food or health care for themselves and their families.
