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.

Crosspoint Church teams with Pearland Neighborhood Center to spread the wealth

Last Thanksgiving, Pastor Tom Allen presented a series about “How To Be Rich” at Crosspoint Church. The attendees at the church understood quickly that this was not a “get rich quick” series, but a focus on understanding how time and money are forms of wealth.

Allen challenged Crosspoint to meet three challenges: Adopt 100 families for Christmas, give away $20,000 dollars to an organization doing great things and perform 4,000 hours of service.

This led to more than 80 volunteers, along with their families, to come to the Pearland Neighborhood Center (PNC) for a full day of service.

The volunteers spent a day of rigorous work sorting thousands of pounds of food, bagging hundreds of toys going out to Pearland families, tackling building issues and cleaning out pods.

Crosspoint also presented Pearland Neighborhood Center with a check for over $31,000 dollars and adopted 116 families through the center for Christmas.

“The Crosspoint Church donation came in at the close of 2014 and is the reason PNC is able to have its first professional brochure and offer better benefits to our staff,” said Past President Naomi Stevens. “Being good stewards of generous people has always been the goal of the Pearland Neighborhood Center.”

“The Pearland Neighborhood Center was the perfect organization to partner with and teach people how to utilize their riches for others,” said Allen.

Combining efforts of local churches, individuals, businesses and schools along with the City of Pearland, United Way and a volunteer Board of Directors, the Pearland Neighborhood Center can continue its mission, “to provide a foundation of effective services and responsive programs to facilitate the development of individuals and families.”

In 1987, PNC Founder Fran Coppinger gathered a group of friends to brighten up the old city hall of Pearland to allow United Way services to be provided to the Pearland area.

PNC services now include a food pantry, baby pantry, grants, a Toys for Tots program, United Way emergency assistance, quarterly food fairs, information and referral, job search assistance, utility and rent assistance through CDGB and countless ways to volunteer.
