On November 20th, PORTCO was the featured audience segment on The Hampton Roads Show. Co-host, Chris Reckling, interviewed Kate Powell, Director of Fundraising & Grants. Candace Hunter, QIDP Workforce Support Coordinator, of PORTCO also represented the organization. Several PORTCO employees participated in the segment as well.
Candace Hunter discussed a new program where PORTCO team members support a local food pantry and soup kitchen initiative that the Basilica of St. Mary’s in Norfolk coordinates. Through this partnership PORTCO team members help by picking up, loading, and delivering food items. PORTCO is pleased to partner with St. Mary’s in this initiative.
Kate Powell discussed a great opportunity for donors to amplify their giving on Tuesday, November 27th.
