New Executive Director brings experience from several nearby social service organizations.
Phoenixville, PA March 2020: Mary Fuller joins Phoenixville Area Community Services as Executive Director on March 9, 2020. Fuller brings both nonprofit community involvement and food pantry experience to Phoenixville Area Community Services (PACS).
Previously the Community Relations and Outreach Director at Variety—The Children’s Charity, Fuller is passionate about social service and community partnership. She is a previous Board Chair with Manna on Main Street in Lansdale, which is a program committed to ending hunger in the North Penn region. Fuller earned her Bachelor’s degree in Communications/Journalism, with a concentration in Public Relations, from Shippensburg University.
“When we began the search for a new executive director, we hoped to find someone who could bring a new level of partnership with the community to PACS,” says Fred Hubler, President of PACS Board. “We understand that our new mission to aspire to be a lead resource for food insecurity in the community will require a leader who understands how the role of food pantries have evolved in recent years and how organizations like PACS can work with others to more fully meet community needs. I believe we’ve found the right person with Mary Fuller.”
Fuller intends to bring her vast experiences as a volunteer, President, and Board Chair of service organizations to help PACS further meet community needs. “I am excited to join PACS,” says Fuller. “Food insecurity is an invisible challenge. In many communities, people don’t realize how many of their neighbors are unable to make ends meet. I’m thrilled to be able to work with the great staff at PACS as we help to meet the needs of the Phoenixville area.”
Phoenixville Area Community Services (PACS) aspires to be a lead resource for food insecurity in the community. Since 1972, PACS has offered support and hope for local residents. As part of its mission, PACS supplies an average of 325 people each month with an emergency food supply that covers three meals for a 3- to 5-day period. Learn how you can help at www.pacsphx.org.
