Twenty years ago, PCI became a 501 (c) 3 on November 16, 1994. Since its inception, PCI has worked hard and received recognition at local, state, and national level for the success in “Filling the Gaps.” We have been received the Channel Six Spirit Award, Oklahoma Association of RC&D Councils three times for our work in reducing child abuse, school dropouts, drug and alcohol abuse, teen pregnancy and other factors contributing to illiteracy and unemployment.
Because there are many people with needs who do not fit the criteria for help offered by many churches, social or private organizations, PCI is their safety net. Parents Club, Inc. is not a duplication of services. It is difficult to get a job without experience, or get a house without a job, or buy clothes for your children without money…except at Parents’ Club, Inc.
We provide clothing, furniture, appliances, etc. for those who cannot afford the basic needs. Those who suffer devastation, such as fire, tornado, or domestic violence, can get help any time–day or night. Other ways we have been able to help:
Volunteers and our community and surrounding communities are very supportive in donating goods. People donate things on a daily basis. Several churches clean out their clothes closets and donate them to Parents’ Club, Inc. Instead of having to store the clothing themselves, they send people with free vouchers to Parents’ Club, Inc. (Example included.) Volunteers keep Parents’ Club, Inc. open. Some drive more than 25 miles–one way–to work all day to provide the needs of our communities.
Through Faith and Charity, We Strengthen Our Communities One Family at a Time!
