Get Involved 

There are many ways to get involved with Pettengill's mission. You will find information about volunteering, conducting a food drive, joining one of our Boards, or making a donation under the tabs above.


Do you work full time but would like to contribute?

  • Consider hosting a work place food drive or collect personal care items for our food pantry. 
  • Ask guests to bring a donation to your next party.
  • Attend our annual fundraiser and/or donate an auction item.


We help clients with emergency assistance.  Gift cards to local stores are welcome, particularly for food, gas or clothing. Your contribution could help someone get to a medical appointment, purchase needed clothing, or provide groceries. 


During the winter holiday season, we conduct a gift card drive for children who missed the sign ups, do not have a program in their town, for teens who age out of the local holiday programs and for families in emergency situations.  


All donations stay local and help improve the quality of life for our clients.
