Giving season

This article was originally published in December 2017

PCC has a selection of festive and sustainable gifts you can give from the heart this holiday season. Candles, scarves and hats all make wonderful gifts. We’re offering kits to make beer or hard cider, as well as special sets for mixing your own cocktails. We also have an array of health and beauty gift options from local and organic producers, such as Moon Valley Organics and Shepard Moon.

For more great gift ideas under $25, see this page.

Let us be part of your gift giving

Want to give a gift that keeps on giving? Support one of PCC’s programs that builds a healthy and sustainable community.

When you buy a specially marked bag of organic Fuji apples, you support food and nutrition programs for local kids. This year, donations are going to Oxbow Farm, Greenplate Special and the Tilth Alliance. Read more about these great organizations on page 6.

Give the gift of a full holiday table through a donation to PCC’s Food Bank Program. Our Food Bank Program has been going strong for more than 25 years. Your donations help us provide the nutritious foods that are needed most.
