Pacific Union College Students Assist with Post-Fire Food Distribution
Pacific Union College was evacuated twice this fall due to wildfires in Napa County. The campus is safe and was not damaged by the fires, and many of the school’s students and employees used the time to give back to their hurting community. During the evacuation time, PUC students, including the women’s volleyball team, volunteered at a local COVID-19 testing site. In addition to assisting the testing site personnel, the athletes and others distributed food, toiletries, and personal health items for families in need. When the local evacuation orders were lifted and the PUC family was allowed to return home, the school partnered with Adventist Health and ADRA to provide warm meals, hygiene items, and 5-gallon jugs of water for hundreds of their Angwin neighbors, who were also returning from evacuation. The delicious food was prepared by local Napa Valley restaurants and Bon Appetit, who runs PUC’s cafeteria, and it was well received by the community, whose power had not yet been restored. What a wonderful way to meet the needs of the community.
