February 2014 off to a great start!

February has started off in a super way for PGO! First, the Thrift Spot had an
exceptional day with more volunteers than normal (in addition to our wonderful regular ladies, this includes boys and men of all ages giving a few hours of their time to help with the setup and take down). Our first service project of 2014 was completed today and the Girl Scout troops of Stone House brought 244 bags of food to our pantry. That’s 2271 pounds of food! The blessings continue to flow.

December’s Pantry

imageDecember was an excellent month for PGO’s food pantry. In addition to the food from the Central Virginia Food Bank, both cash and food was donated by individuals, churches and companies from the Barhamsville community. Our community’s support enabled us to provide food for ninety three families with fifty five of those families receiving food on both of our opening days. Over thirty different people served as volunteers as four bags of groceries were provided for each family each time the pantry was open. Truly, God is blessing this work. We at PGO would like to express our sincere gratitude to all our volunteers and the fine work they have done this year. A Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.

In honor of Jacob Vick Fundraiser

This coming Saturday is the last week of The Thrift Spot’s donations being given to the Make A Wish Foundation in memory of Jacob Vick. Stop by for all of our great deals and drop a dollar in the donation box. It will go a long ways to make a child’s wish come true for Christmas.

“Jacob Vick is and always will be an inspiration to everyone he came in contact with. He touched the lives of many, and now it is time for us to give back in his honor. In lieu of the Thanksgiving and Christmas season, this fundraiser is to give his family hope that we haven’t and never will forget Jacob, his presence will always be with us.

We don’t have a goal, we’re just trying to raise as much money as possible. Donations will be accepted until December 15th and then something will be put together for the Vick family for Christmas to let them know how much was raised.” For more info or to donate online visit – http://friends.wish.org/100-000/page/Robyn-Ladd/In-Honor-of-Jacob-Vick.htm
