Employees of Petersburg Department of Social Services were the recipients of the Give Back Program this year. They are very much appreciative of the kindness and generosity of the members of BPRO, VASWP and POSSESS. Thanks go out to Elaine Thweatt, BPRO Ambassador and staff from Prince George DSS for delivering these times to them! We collected 3 carloads of supplies along with monetary and gift card donations. Well done! Well done!

This year, BPRO in partnership with POSSESS and VASWP, will be donating to Petersburg Department of Social Services.
It’s time to help a sister agency. The staff of Petersburg Social Services is in need of our support. Due to economic shortfalls in the city government, their department has been faced with critical shortages that have made for some significant work challenges. The department budget for supplies has been drastically cut leaving workers without needed critical office supplies, paper supplies for restrooms, and other items we typically take for granted in our everyday work environment. Workers in Petersburg have a strong history of supporting BPRO and now BPRO would like to support Petersburg workers. As part of our Spring Conference Give Back project we will be collecting any and all items:
· Post it notes
· Paper towels
· Toilet paper
· Hand soap
· Hand sanitizer
· Monetary donations
Please bring the mentioned items listed to conference. We will have a box near registration table for you to drop off your items. All items must be dropped off by 3 pm, Thursday, May 11th, 2017.
Start checking out all the great workshops planned for our 25th Anniversary Conference. But remember in an effort to go green, do not print.
