The Give Back Hour

Do you have an hour to give?

 
Join PGK monthly for an hour of virtual service from the comfort of your home or school. Much like our popular sessions during Create the Change® Week 2020, each of these hour-long sessions will explore one of our cause areas and involve an act of service to benefit one of PGK’s nonprofit partners. Sessions are being planned for the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month. Sign up for our newsletter to be alerted when new sessions are added.
