Pearland will once again be part of the Share Your Holidays Food Drive with Houston Food Bank and ABC Channel 13.
In Pearland, the event is hosted by the Pearland Neighborhood Center and will take place Friday, December 7, 2018 from 6 am to 6 pm at PNC at 2335 N. Texas Avenue in Pearland.
The PNC will be open to receive nonperishable and unexpired canned, boxes, and bottled foods.
Live entertainment will be provided all day.
Volunteers are needed to help mark out bar codes, check expiration dates, organize entertainment and food for volunteers, lifting boxes, sorting and more.
According to the Houston Food Bank, the need for food this year is greater than before.
Their records show last year’s event brought in approximately 434,000 pounds of non-perishable food and over $170,000 in cash donations. The two together helped feed more than 16,000 people in the Greater Houston Area.
For more information for the Pearland event or to volunteer, call the PNC at 281-485-1987 or call Vicky Smith at 832-904-0300.
