    Zoom Away with the PNA: A swell adventure!

    On Saturday, May 8, PNA friends gathered on a virtual “trip” for our spring party and fundraiser: Zoom Away with the PNA. Folks zipped around the neighborhood, tested local and world knowledge, met community members, shared stories and tidbits in the chat, and donated generously. Zoom Away travelers gave over $18,500 to PNA’s community programs! We’re hoping to top it off with another $5,000 by the week’s end, so if you’d like to help meet the goal, click "read more." Missed it? You can check out the videos - including a fun PhinneyWood jaunt with neighborhood sights and PNA highlights. ...

  • Members Make Us…

    Members Make Us…

    This month, we're launching our annual PNA Membership Campaign to show our appreciation for our incredible members, and to (hopefully) engage new folks to join. For the last 41 years, members have been the backbone of the PNA. Our staff spent some time reflecting on some of the stories that our neighbors have shared with us—especially in this past year—of ways that being part of the PNA community has impacted their lives. We know that the PNA wouldn’t exist without our members. Members make us—and our community—Meaningful, Engaged, Motivated, Build(ers), Essential, Resourceful, and Strong(er). ...
