The night before the PV Directory phone books goes out to all Palos Verdes Peninsula residents, more than 50 parent volunteers from Palos Verdes Hills Nursery School along with 50+ Peninsula student volunteers prepare the phone book for delivery. Three large trucks deliver over 26,000 books in over 1,600 boxes, on 24 pallets. The books are examined, then stickers and envelopes are placed on the cover. They are bagged and carefully put back into the boxes. This event takes between 5-7 hours to complete. The event is lovingly called “Stuffing” by the hundreds of families who have participated over the 59 years the directory has been published for the PV residents. A big thank you goes out to all the volunteers, both past and present for their hard work.

On the day the PV Directories are delivered, another group of 400+ volunteers from Community Helpline arrives in the early hours of the morning. The loading of the cars begins. Student volunteers then go from house to house hand delivering the precious books. Each volunteer driver is given a route. Since the cars can only hold a specific number of books along with the volunteers, the drivers return to the pick up point several times, refilling their book quota. Thank you Community Helpline for making sure the Palos Verdes residents all receive their local PV Directory.
The PV Directory proceeds benefit the Palos Verdes Hills Nursery School in Rolling Hills, which has been educating our children for over 60 years. The parents at the school work diligently to stuff each directory and get it ready for delivery, with the help of local high school students. It is a real community effort!
