This year our Youth Action Board (YAB) is hosting a PIT Donation Drive to help collect supplies that our PIT Count volunteers will hand out to anyone they encounter on the night of the PIT Count. The YAB PIT Donation Drive will be this Friday, December 15th from 6:00-10:00 PM at the Exchange at Beverly Gray’s Christmas Pop Up.

Donations needed:
