Donors were invited to a stocking stuffing party at the firm on December 4th. Joining in the fun was a group of seven from Durham’s Partners for Youth Opportunity, an organization that provides youth with opportunities to learn through mentoring, employment and educational support. Malvern King, founding partner of Pulley Watson is mentoring a group from the organization.

Over 50 guests in all helped to prepare the stockings; it was a great turnout. “We want to personally thank each and every one of you who gave your time, money and energy to help reach out to our military heroes. We could not have done it without you”, said Mr. King.

Durham Urban Ag Interns Graduate

The PYO program has long been a supporter of Inter-Faith Food Shuttle and volunteered in the original West End garden. They graciously came on this year as an official partner of the IFFS and are now working closely with the Langley Garden Interns. Keo, LaDajia, Serina and Chamiya were all outstanding students in the PYO program and we look forward to hiring more students like them next year! They all expressed interest in urban farming and quickly got to work flipping the Langley Garden plot into the urban food space it is today.
