Pride Charities receives funding for the food pantry and
clothes closet through private donations from individuals and organizations,
from various fundraising events within the community, and from revenue received
through the operation of a charitable bingo license. All monies raised or
donated to Pride Charities, Inc. goes 100% to client services. All the intakes
and services are provided by our dedicated volunteers.
In 2013, Pride Charities began leasing an expanded space in
the rear of the Activities Building at Resurrection MCC in an effort to
consolidate, expand, and prepare this ministry for growth. The food pantry
previously operated from three different spaces on the campus of Resurrection
MCC. The move to the new facility has allowed Pride Charities to expand storage space for food and food items used to serve our clients. We were also able to provide a much larger space for our Clothes Closet.
In 2015, some of the outreach activities Pride Charities led included organizing and partnering with Resurrection MCC to assemble and distribute food bags for Houston-area homeless, collecting and donating school supplies for a neighboring elementary school. Pride Charities also sponsored the Christmas Bag Program at Resurrection MCC.
The Food Pantry and Clothes Closet is open on the
1st Tuesday of each month (8:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.) and the
2nd & 4th Saturday of each month (9:00 a.m. - 12 noon).
Food, clothing and monetary contributions to Pride Charities
are needed to continue this valuable community service.
A complete list of food
items needed for the food pantry can be found on the "Make a Donation
