We are proud to announce our February PWNP initiative, "Chocolate Box Challenge."

February 1-14, 2020.

PLEASE NOTE: Please bring in chocolate donations during your parent/teacher conference(s).

Each year before Valentine’s Day, PWNP collects chocolate boxes and requests small needed items to deliver to those less fortunate. Their shelters are in great need and we can help.

All products will be donated to our area shelters: Youth Empowered Society, NEST, Howard Community College Food Pantry, Grassroots Crisis and Intervention Center and Sarah’s Hope.
