PVREA’s 4th Annual NoCo Gives Back Food Drive was another success for 2018. Between the 11 donation stations, PVREA and participating businesses raised nearly 3,200 food items to give back to our local communities. The top three donation stations that collected the most items won a cash prize, and the opportunity to choose a nonprofit organization for PVREA to give a matching donation to. Thank you to the businesses who participated, and those who donated to the Food Drive.
