Throughout the year, from time to time, our members also donate specific items needed by charities. This can take many forms, from filling the holiday wish lists for children at one or more of our charities, to collecting school supplies, clothing items, or baby needs, for example.
PVWC chooses charities each year to support. This year, due to unprecedented circumstances, we are extending our charity selection through the 2021-22 Club year.

A non-profit maternity home and high school for pregnant teenagers
