HOURS OF OPERATION
and 3rd Tuesdays (9 a.m. to noon)
3rd and 4th Saturdays (9:30 a.m. to noon)
is a 501(c)(3) non-profit
organization, originally formed by members of Resurrection MCC in 1993. Our
purpose is community outreach and service. Working hand-in-hand with
Resurrection MCC, Pride Charities' sole responsibility is the management and
operations of the food pantry and clothes closet, serving hundreds of clients
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 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.
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 food pantry office was located in the Sanctuary building; storage of
food pantry items was in the Activities Building; and storage of items for the
Clothes Closet was in the Activities Building. Renovations were completed in
May, 2013, which included installing two air conditioning units, painting walls
and floors, electrical work, and computer and phone equipment upgrades.
Our move to the new facilities has allowed Pride Charities
to expand our storages 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.
The Food Pantry and Clothes Closet is currently open on the
first and third Tuesday of each month from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and the second, third and
fourth Saturday of each month from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
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
page. Nonperishable donations may be dropped off in the shopping cart located
in the Welcome Area at Resurrection MCC. Financial contributions may be made
online or in the offering basket on Sunday. Simply make your check payable to
