PVSP has supported MDA for the past three years and solely raised more than $2,600 sending children to the MDA Summer Camp.

Recently, PVSP Fire Capt. Chris King organized its annual Fill the Boot drive by going office to office and door to door to help raise money for MDA.

Through worldwide research, comprehensive medical services, and far-reaching professional education, MDA, and with the help of friends like PVSP, continues to make a difference to more than 1,000 families in Central California.

The Central Valley MDA fundraising coordinator recently thanked, Warden  P. D. Brazelton, or his staff’s efforts and generosity.
