Swing by the exhibit hall on Friday between 9am-11am, grab a raffle ticket, and make your way to the NPMA booth at the back of the hall to participate! We will be stuffing backpacks for needy children and creating hygiene kits for local shelter residents. Just 5 minutes of your time could make a huge difference in someone’s life.
There will be drawings every 30 minutes for great prizes! You must be present to win. No purchase is necessary to participate in PestWorld Gives Back or the drawing.

Join your fellow attendees for an off-site opportunity to volunteer at the Jacobs & Cushman San Deigo Food Back to provide hunger-relief for the local county.

Join the PestVets Committee at 1 PM on Friday, October 18, as they perform ship restoration and up-keep on the USS Midway, the longest-serving aircraft carrier of the 20th century. Commissioned on September 10, 1945, the USS Midway was the first in a three-ship class of large carriers that featured an armored flight deck and a powerful air group of 120 planes. It was used heavily during the Cold War, Vietnam War, and Operation Desert Storm. FMC and PestVets welcome you to give-back and show your appreciation for this important piece of American Military history.
Participate in one or several of these events. Pre-sign up is available for the PWIPM Fun Run, LNC Gives Back and PestVets Gives Back. If you plan on participating in the PestWorld Gives Back in the Exhibit Hall, we ask that your pledge your participation here. We can then send you any updates on the event. Keep in mind that you don’t have to pre-register to participate but we would love to get an idea of the support for the event! You may even receive an additional prize for pledging your commitment to be there! We are encouraging both attendees and exhibitors to get involved.
