Support the Phil Station

Since opening, the Phil Station Food Pantry has provided groceries, personal hygiene, and infant care items to hundreds of students. However, hunger on campus has continued to rise and is a problematic trend facing many of our students at VHCC and other colleges. In addition to lasting, long-term effects on a student’s health and well-being, food insecurity also impacts retention and timely degree or certification completion. Simply put, students cannot thrive if their basic needs are not being met.

Join us as we raise money to ensure all students have access to resources that support their success.
