Pearland Neighborhood Center helping to ‘Share Your Holidays’

The Pearland Neighborhood Center will be participating again in one of Houston’s most successful food drives, “Share Your Holidays,” on Friday, Dec. 4, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. There are many areas to volunteer for this major and most rewarding event. This invitation to participate goes out to the city, businesses, service clubs, churches, schools, families and individuals.

At the food drive, the mood is festive with music from area choirs. Santa Clause will be greeting children and volunteers will be working together.

The need is serious, especially during these tough economic times. Over 45,000 pounds of food collected last year met the needs of Pearland’s underprivileged citizens during the holiday season and stocked the shelves of the Pearland Neighborhood Center’s food pantry for several months.

City Asks for Resident Participation in Survey

Survey

The City of Pearland is asking residents to participate in The National Citizen Survey, a city-wide initiative to allow residents to rate the quality of life in the city and their perception of City government.

A random and scientific survey of 1200 households was conducted from Jan. 5 – Feb. 9. Now, we’re releasing our non-scientific survey link to allow all residents to let their voice be heard. Complete the survey here: www.n-r-c.com/survey/pearlandsurvey2015.htm

Both surveys are designed to provide a baseline of how the city government is serving residents, to gauge perceptions of the city and to make comparisons with peer cities.
