@2016 Positively Impacting Communities.

OUR IMPACT

When a droplet of water hits the surface of a pond, it creates a ripple effect, spreading outward, getting bigger, and impacting an area far beyond itself.  At PIC, we start as a single drop, and with God's love, our positive impact spreads throughout schools, homes and the community creating a place where individuals can thrive.

Last Thursday, as junior and high school students were released from school, PIE Club members headed over to Mikulski Hall to start setting up for our Spring Food Giveaway.

Families whose children receive free or reduced fee lunches at Rose Garden Elem., Wilder Intermediate, Corbett Junior High and Clemens High schools were invited to attend; 100 families (with over 400 family members) were each given a large package of produce...

Last year one of the seniors in the Clemens PIE Club asked if we could visit the junior high and share with the 8th graders what she wished she had known coming into high school. We were able to make it happen and the presentation was well received so we've made it into an annual event. 

For the last four weeks, the Clemens PIE Club has brainstormed, planned and practiced

the presentation for this year. On Tuesday, Feb. 11th the...

Last spring one of the junior high students asked if we could go to a homeless shelter. The others quickly joined in. Since then we've worked towards that goal and on Friday, Jan. 31st 7 junior high PIE Club students went to Haven for Hope to volunteer and take a tour of the facility. 

After we arrived, one of the staff led us on an hour tour of the facility. The group saw:

  • the intake center

  • catery and dog kennel,

  • ...

On Friday, as junior and high school students finished their last exam and school dismissed for the Christmas break, PIE Club members headed over to Mikulski Hall to start setting up for our 4th annual Christmas Food Giveaway.

Families whose children receive free or reduced fee lunches at Rose Garden Elem., Wilder Intermediate, Corbett Junior High and Clemens High schools are invited to attend; where they'll receive up to a 50...

On Thursday, Aug. 29th the PIC Food Pantry at Clemens High School opened for the 2019/20 school year. The food pantry is open Thursdays at the end of the school day for students and staff in need to pick-up food to take home. 

Flyers were hung in the school and invitations were emailed from the school to parents of students that qualified for free or reduced fee school meals. On average we serve 22 families each week rangi...

In early October the high school PIE Club took a field trip to the Intermediate school where they met the 5th & 6th grade PIE members. Once everyone was together, we played a fun ice breaker game to get everyone laughing and shake off any nervousness. Then we broke up into 8 groups of 10, they played the ice breaker game which had everyone laughing and spent about 10 minutes talking before rotating to the next group.

It's neat...

Last year, during Red Ribbon Week (annual anti-drug campaign) we asked a group of

junior high students why they should say no to drugs. We were surprised to learn they knew they should say no, but didn't know why. And with states legalizing marijuana they were confused about why it could be harmful. 

So this year, the high school PIE Club spent two weeks learning about the dangerous side effects of drugs, with the goal of educat...

Every summer I'm excited to see the kids and teens arrive, the bonds form and everyone grow in Christ. 

This summer children were nurtured academically, nutritionally and, probably most important, emotionally as they were supported by teens and adults in the community.

Each week the children picked out books in their reading level, read, discussed the story and visited with their mentor. After 40 minutes of reading, they moved o...

On Friday, May 31st - the day after school was released for the summer - the Summer Reading Mentor and FREE lunch program started with eight students, eight youth mentors and six adult volunteers. 

Every week of the last three summers I'm in awe how God perfectly orchestrates the number of volunteers to be exactly what we need and how He's reaching each person

Each child has a special story. The youth mentors are vital to...

On Thursday, Apr. 25th we officially opened the PIC Food Pantry at Clemens High School. The food pantry will be open Thursdays at the end of the school day for students and staff in need to pick-up food to take home. 

Invitations were emailed from the school to parents of students that qualified for free or reduced fee school meals. The first day we served seventeen families ranging in size from 1 to 8 family members; total fam...
