PACA donation

~ PVN staff report

Page Alliance for Community Action (PACA) recently received a $2,500 donation from Afresh Cleaning Services.

Andrea Good recently donated a portion of her company’s first quarter profits to PACA to help support the non-profit’s prevention programs. PACA is a coalition of agencies, parents, youth and concerned citizens, who’s main goal is to promote healthy life choices for both youth and families in Page County. The organization focuses on two key issues — substance misuse, abuse and prevention; and combating child obesity. PACA plans numerous programs and projects throughout the year to meet those goals.

“We are grateful for the donation and even more grateful that Andrea shared her story with us,” said Megan Gordon, PACA’s Program Director. “We hope she will continue to share her story and encourage others to believe in themselves.”

PACA strives to implement environmental strategies to impact our community and to provide real solutions that promote positive changes. Some of those strategies include the coordination of an after-prom party, a DUI crash simulation by the Virginia State Police, the creation of a community garden, financial grant-funded support of community playgrounds and outdoor activities, such as free swimming lessons for local youth.
