Donate to the PEC Holiday Drive
Please help People’s Emergency Center (PEC) create warm and happy memories for the mothers and children we serve. You can help ensure that our families experience the joy and hope of the holiday by donating any new and unwrapped items on the Suggested Ideas for Holiday Gifts List. Please deliver all gifts new and unwrapped to 3902 Spring Garden Street, Monday-Friday between 9am and 5pm between December 3rd and December 19th. We also encourage donating wrapping paper, ribbons and bows to give moms the opportunity to wrap their own children’s gifts.

PEC started as an all-volunteer agency. We host dedicated volunteers every year who want to make a difference in the community. PEC is always looking for energetic people to lend a helping hand.
Volunteer alone or with your family, your colleagues or your faith community. Commit to one day, once a week, or once a month – your time and presence can be so very important. You could volunteer for a few weeks or months, or even make a year-long commitment to helping PEC further its mission.
