Foodbank – Distribution
Student success is at the core of our mission at PDCCC. Simply put, we care about our students. Our staff understands that in addition to academic concerns, student may encounter non-academic concerns as well, particularly around this time of year. Some of these concerns may include whether or not enough resources are available for food, clothing, shelter, transportation, medical expenses, etc.
At this time, we would like to announce that through our partnership with the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore, 50 bags of non-perishable food items were delivered to PDCCC. These bags will be distributed on the Franklin and Suffolk campuses, in addition to PDCCC at Smithfield.
Please know that we respect students’ right to confidentiality. Students will not be asked to sign for items that will be distributed.
Distribution (Franklin and Suffolk Campuses): December 13, 2017, 1:00 p.m. through December 15, 2017, 3:00 p.m.
Distribution (Smithfield Center): Please contact Director Toni Johnson at 757-925-6342 or email@example.com.
