CURRENT / UPCOMING EVENTS:

Fall / Winter 2016 – PVEN Angel Tree Christmas Gift Program
PVEN Food Pantry once again produced its annual Angel Tree Program to qualifying families with children in our community. Toys are donated by a combination of local churches and individuals, and a great number of additional toys are supplied by The Monroe County Marine Corps Toys For Tots Program.
Summer / Fall 2016 – PVEN Garden Project
This year PVEN is developing its own garden on approximately 3/4 of an acre lent to us by a local farmer on Twin Pines road. Volunteers helped break ground and till the soil, raise fencing, and plant vegetables donated by several of the same farms that have been providing fresh produce over the years!
