Tourism Tuesday: Page Alliance for Community Action
17 December 2019
We were in the studio for Tourism Tuesday – Luray/Page County edition – with (sick) Edie Emmons from Luray/Page County Chamber of Commerce & her guest, Megan Gordon, Program Director from Page Alliance for Community Action (PACA).
Megan told us about her organization, it’s goals and funding sources. We also talked about the vaping epidemic among our youth and the programs PACA offers to educate parents and the community to prevent addiction. Megan also gave us the details for an upcoming fundraiser: Polar Bear Plunge. You can get more details about that event here: https://pacapolarbearplunge.com/
Page Alliance for Community Action (PACA) is a non-profit coalition of agencies, parents, youth and concerned citizens. Their main goal is to promote healthy life choices for the youth and families in Page County. They work to provide a healthy, drug-free environment for those in our community. With the volunteers in their coalition, the funding from federal, state and foundation grants, PACA has focused their attention on preventing substance abuse among our youth and combating childhood obesity with physical activities and nutritional education.
