Bypassing political drama and media headlines, PCIC and our sister organization, Southern Arizona Interfaith (SAI) sprung into action. The below headlines are links to our PCIC Facebook Page, where you will find captioned photo collections and full text. We encourage you and your friends to "like" our page for a more expedient, sharable way to communicate. We will be posting our actions and accomplishments there - as they happen... don't miss out.
