Without our a terrific team of volunteers, Portage Community Center wouldn't be able to offer the services we do. Our volunteers are the backbone of what we do on a daily basis! PCC offers a variety of ways people can help out. We have an option that fits any family. PCC is a federally registered 501 (c) (3). All donations to us are completely tax deductible. Help us
Make Life Better for those in Portage that need assistance!
Make Life Better Campaign
We are in the middle of our Make Life Better Campaign! Our goal is to raise $10,000 in thirty days! Just think....if 400 people donated $25 we would reach our goal! This campaign is to help us fund our ever increasing demand for services. Your donation will help us with items such as providing food, clothing, utility assistance and evicition assistance to families in need. Click on the DONATE NOW button below and help us Make Life Better!
PCC is dependent upon financial contributions from our friends. While we do receive funding from both the City of Portage and the United Way, contributions from our friends help us provide the needed assistance and programs for those in our community who need it the most. Besides general contributions, we also accept contributions for memorials and seasonal programs. For more information, please contact Executive Director Chris Buckley at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 323-1942 x212
