“We’re very grateful to PCCF for providing the funding to hire interns again this year,” said Carol Newton, Outreach’s Executive Director, “It is a real win-win situation – the students gain valuable experience and have the chance to help our neighbors in need, and Outreach benefits from their hard work.”
