On August 19th PCA National named the Appalachian Region as the winner of the Public Service Award given each year to the PCA Region that demonstrates the best interaction with its local charities.

The trophy is accompanied by a $1500 cash award to the winning region, which the APR Board decided to donate to two of our favorite charities – $1,000 to MANNA FoodBank and $500 to the VA Hospital.
