The first charitable contribution was made in 1981 and to date, The PIG has contributed over a half of a million dollars to such charities as: Fairhaven Childrens Home, VAAN, SCAP, Samaritan Center, Childrens Advocacy Center, Kids in Crisis, Upward Community Services, K-Bar-B Youth Ranch and others.
