I am very grateful to PLCCA. During the holiday seasons PLCCA gives away holiday baskets to the community. If it wasn’t for PLCCA remembering those in need during the holiday’s my family and I wouldn’t have had as good of an holiday we were able to have thanks to PLCCA. It’s great to have an organization like this in our community.

PLCCA does an enormous amount of work in the community. We are particularly interested in the work that they do when it comes to helping those who are victims of violent crimes. PLCCA has been a partner of ours in this area over the years and has helped us to identify those individuals and getting them the help that they need.
