In the community
Finding common ground with our local communities.
At PCC, we're proud to be more than a retailer. Over the years, we've worked to cultivate relationships with the communities our stores serve. We support dozens of neighborhood events and celebrations through sponsorships and food donations, and we try to lend a hand to neighbors in need when we can.
This fall, eating an apple a day comes with a big benefit — proceeds from the sale of Fuji apples sold in specially marked Farm to School bags at PCC stores will support nonprofit programs that provide a variety of hands-on activities for K-12 students and their teachers.
The PCC Food Bank Program works to provide thousands of pounds of basic, healthy food to local food banks in an effort to reduce hunger in our communities.
PCC Healthy Kids is a multi-year initiative to improve local children's health through nutrition including our PCC Kid Picks program.
PCC Scrip is a fundraising tool we've developed as an easy and rewarding way for schools and nonprofit organizations to raise money when their supporters shop in our stores.
We also strive to support local organizations in our communities through donations in the form of gift cards, cooking classes, and products.
PCC strives to support organizations and schools located throughout the regions served by our stores. Four times each year, PCC awards a $1,000 grant to a school or nonprofit that exemplifies the spirit of our local community.
