COVID-19 Response Efforts

PCPC has formed a COVID-19 Response Team to respond swiftly, decisively, and appropriately to needs that have arisen and continue to arise due to the pandemic. This group is responsible for all PCPC relief efforts and coordination, both financial and non-financial, and they are proactively contacting ministry partners and church partners to assess needs. As you have a need or become aware of a need, you can e-mail it to deaconhelp@pcpc.org.


Current Projects

Food for Dallas Families

As the COVID-19 Relief Team has continued to communicate with nonprofit partners and community leaders around the city, food scarcity has been identified as a big concern. PCPC has partnered with Ben E. Keith to order bulk food product which is packed on a weekly basis by a small team of volunteers. Food is distributed to a few ministry partners each week for families in their communities. Food ordered will feed a family of four for three weeks, at $160 per family. We want to care for as many as 1,000 families, primarily in West and South Dallas.

Recipients as of May 6, 2020: Casa del Lago, Cristo Rey Presbyterian Church, North Dallas High School, PCPC ESL, Golden Gate Baptist Church, West Dallas Community School, New City Presbyterian Church

Filling Supply Needs

Funds contributed to the COVID-19 & Disaster Relief Fund are also being used to provide supplies such as hand sanitizer, toilet paper, feminine products, disinfectant, laundry detergent, etc. to ministry partners and neighborhood churches.
