Donations

DonationsPVEN welcomes your donations of food, clothing, and financial support.

Financial Support
Your direct financial donations are leveraged to buy food at bulk prices.
Click here to Donate Online.

What do your gifts do?

  • $10 —  Buys nearly 60 pounds of food to feed families in need across Polk, Chestnuthill, Ross, Eldred, Jackson and Hamilton townships in Monroe county.  Our bulk-buying power and access to national food bank services allows us to be much more efficient with your donation than donating food alone.
    Setting up your gift as a repeating monthly gift allows us to plan our purchasing and take advantage of special discounts.
  • $25 — Covers the food and transportation costs for 10 summer lunch meals in our special Summer Lunch for Kids program.
  • $100 — Pays about 8 days worth of the heat and electricity that it takes to store and distribute the food and clothing we give away to residents across southern Monroe County.

If you prefer to write a check, please make checks out to: Pleasant Valley Ecumenical Network and mail it to the P.O. Box at the bottom of this page. Be sure to include your name and address with your contribution.
We are also happy to receive gifts of store gift cards from local grocery and department stores.
