Pacifica Resource Center Challenged by The Sam Mazza Foundation!

Help PRC meet The Sam Mazza Foundation’s year end challenge and raise $70,000 to support the growing number of Pacifica families struggling to make ends meet.

Pacifica, CA, December 2018:  The Sam Mazza Foundation is partnering with PRC again this year to raise funds for PRC’s work, providing economic security and safety net services to Pacificans struggling to make ends meet. Make a financial gift before December 31, 2018 and up to $35,000 will be generously matched by The Sam Mazza Foundation. And, The Sam Mazza Foundation went a step further and sponsored PRC’s Golden Ticket prize, admittance to a docent tour of Sam’s Castle, for those select few who find a Golden Ticket in their envelope.

“Everyone loves a challenge and prizes!” PRC Executive Director Anita Rees happily states. “Our partnership with The Sam Mazza Foundation gives our supporters both while also recognizing that our work is even more vital as the cost of living continues to rise in San Mateo County.” For example, 1 in 10 Pacifica households earned less than $25,000 and nearly 5 in 10 Pacifica families earned less than $117,400 – the US Department of Housing's low-income threshold for a family of 4 (source:  U.S. Census Bureau's 2012-2016 American Community Survey). This means nearly half of Pacifica families could benefit from PRC’s support, but they may not realize they are eligible for PRC’s services.

Help PRC meet The Sam Mazza Foundation challenge by giving before December 31, 2018. And, don’t forget to look for the Golden Ticket. In your wildest dreams, you could not imagine the marvelous surprises that await you!

PRC is the only core agency in San Mateo County that provides these services to Pacificans struggling to make ends meet.
