Ascension continues to be involved in the following local community outreach organizations:
Parkesburg Churches Community Outreach (PCCO) http://parkesburgchurchescommunityoutreach.org/ 7 Churches/8 Denominations/1 Mission:The Parkesburg area family of churches, in conjunction with various county and state agencies, seeks to serve the basic human needs of our community which include, but are not limited to, food, clothing, furniture, utilities, and to do so in the name of Christ our Savior. Funding for PCCO is provided by donations from the member churches, organizations, businesses and individuals.
The Octorara Area Food Cupboard http://www.octfood.com/ Non-perishable food items are always needed. As well as toiletries: soap, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, dish & laundry soaps, etc.
They are always accepting and in need of reusable grocery bags. Items may be left at The Church of the Ascension.
Students at The Point will manage the process. Donations and requests will be handled via a separate webpage, the PCCO Furniture Ministry, that will only be accessible from the PCCO website.
All donations and pickups will be scheduled in advance via PCCO's webpage. The webpage will be maintained by the students at The Point. Adult advisors will train the students and meet with them monthly to address their questions and concerns.
