Pine Grove Elementary Network

Pine Grove Elementary School

2701 Summit Avenue

Parkville, MD 21234

Lead Volunteers:  Anna Gibbons and Shaina Zobel

Founded in 1969, Pine Grove Elementary School has students in grades K-5 with a current enrollment of 601 students.  Of these, 30% live in severe poverty, 183 qualify for Free Meals, 79 depend on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and approximately 8 are currently identified as homeless.  Many others live in families who make too much to qualify for meal assistance, but not enough to make ends meet.

The lead volunteers of the Pine Grove Elementary Network are Anna Gibbons and Shaina Zobel, who will work with school staff to fulfill student needs and stock and organize the room for students, now known as the Panda Pantry.
