We Are Family: Internal Giving Campaign includes two new funds

Tree SilhouetteThis year, donors to Pellissippi State’s Internal Giving Campaign have two brand-new funds to support as part of the college family.

The Pellissippi Pantry fund will support a five-campus food pantry that will provide nutritious packaged and fresh food to students in need. The pantry will be completely confidential for participating students. It will launch in summer 2016 in partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee and Pellissippi State’s own community garden.

The Hardin Valley Campus Garden fund will support a community garden scheduled to open later this month. The garden will provide food for the Pellissippi Pantry and for the Hardin Valley Campus cafeteria, Service-Learning opportunities for students and a learning environment for sustainable agricultural practices.

The “We Are Family” internal giving campaign runs March 28-April 8 and supports more than 80 funds and scholarships that benefit students. For more information about any of the funds, visit www.pstcc.edu/foundation/internalcampaign. One hundred percent of your tax-deductible donation supports Pellissippi State.

Employees have several options to give:

  • A one-time or recurring donation through check, cash or credit card at https://giving.pstcc.edu
  • An automatic deduction from payroll, either recurring or one-time
  • Participation in rewards programs through Amazon Smiles and Kroger by designating the Pellissippi State Foundation as the recipient of funds

As a thank you, everyone who donates during the internal giving campaign will receive limited edition “Proud to Give” lapel pins. Additionally, donors will be entered to win prizes from local entertainment venues and businesses.
