Pearce's Food Cupboard
People from Pearce, Pearce 4 Kids, and our community provide a supply of nonperishable food and personal care items to over 1,000 individuals each year through our Food Cupboard
. A great team of volunteers, combined with generous donations, make this outreach to families in need possible.
Foodlink's Backpack Program
In partnership with Foodlink, Pearce provides food-insecure children in our community with food for the weekend when they aren’t in school.
Thanksgiving Community Food Ministry
Each year, we join with other location churches and organizations to provide boxes of food to families in our community for Thanksgiving. In 2020, we were able to provide 1,050 boxes, even with limitations in place from COVID. Thank you for your generosity!
Foodlink's Mobile Food Pantry
In partnership with Foodlink, Pearce hosts a Mobile Food Pantry
several times each year. This mobile food pantry provides perishable food from Foodlink’s warehouse, providing fresh produce to those who need it most.
Family Promise (RAIHN)
formally known as Rochester Area Interfaith Hospitality Network or RAIHN works with churches in Rochester who host homeless families one week every quarter or support the congregations that do host. However, during the COVID pandemic, RAIHN has had to change the way they operate. While volunteer opportunities are limited, we need our community now more than ever. Check here to learn about the changes Family Promise has made and how you can help
this organization meet the needs of some of the most vulnerable families in our community.
Immigration Legal Services
New Hope Free Methodist Church, in the city of Rochester, is providing low-cost Immigrant Legal Services
to help new residents navigate the confusing world of forms and government applications.
