Christmas Sponsorship Program
In 2007, the Christmas Sponsorship program was created and hosted by the TRIO programs for TRIO students and their families. Typically every November, active TRIO students anonymously complete an application requesting practical items such as food and clothing, as well as wish list items like bicycles and gift cards. These completed applications are submitted to on and off campus partners and they proceed to purchase the items requested. The distribution of Christmas packages are presented during the last week of school for the Fall semester in the TRIO office. This is an event that allows the PCC family and community to give back to students who persevere to accomplish their goals in the midst of the barriers they face on a day to day basis. On behalf of the TRIO staff, we are honored to host the event and look forward to it every year. We are especially appreciative of all the sponsors for their unselfish generosity.
