    Parkside Annual Appeal

    Our Annual Appeal

    Without faithful Parkside residents like you, the work we do would not be possible. For those of you who have generously completed community service, come out in support of our events, and financially contributed, we are so grateful.

    If you've enjoyed our many community events and campaigns, sent your children to our Summer Arts Camp, or if you simply appreciate being a part of a community that cares for its neighbors, please consider making a tax-deductible gift to the PCA.
