Lead Volunteers:  Anna Gibbons and Cari Suarez

Pine Grove Elementary School joined the Student Support Network in February, 2020.

Founded in 1969, Pine Grove Elementary has students in grades K-5 with a current enrollment of 567 students.  Of these, 38% live in severe poverty: 213 qualify for Free Meals, 128 depend on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and 5 are currently identified as homeless.  Many others live in families who make too much to qualify for meal assistance, but not enough to make ends meet.

The lead volunteers of the Pine Grove Elementary Network are Anna Gibbons and Cari Suarez, who work with school staff to fulfill student needs and stock and organize the room for students, known as the Panda Pantry.
