How To Help

Donations of all kinds help Pajaro Valley Shelter Services to be successful. Please consider supporting PV Shelter through your monetary gifts, donated items and volunteer services. For a current list of items needed or volunteer opportunities available, please call (831) 728-5649.

Our famlies have special needs for the holidays. Please consider purchasing gift cards at local supermarkets to help families have a nice Thanksgiving meal. Gift cards to Target, Ross, or KMart will help families purchase winter clothing for their children. Cards can be mailed or dropped off at Pajaro Valley Shelter Services, 115 Brennan Street, Watsonville, CA 95076. To assure that your gift goes to the designated purchase, families turn in receipts to the office. Thank you and Happy Holidays!
