DRIVES & EVENTS
You can help impact lives today! Team up with your friends, workplace, church or school, and share in the joy of giving to those in need!
HOST A DRIVE: A drive makes a big impact. And it’s a great way to build community through the shared joy of giving with your friends, workplace or church. Last year PCM helped nearly 30,000 of our hungry and homeless neighbors — because of donations from people like you!
HOST A FUNDRAISING EVENT: Inspire your group, workplace or church to be creative and give back by hosting your own fundraiser for PCM. We’ve seen everything from jean days and fun runs to partial sale donations and soup cook-offs.

The Men’s Shelter is staffed with full-time and on-call supervisors and caseworkers.
Earl is responsible for the overall administration of the Men’s Homeless Shelter, providing leadership as well as program accountability.
When not at work, his time is spent with his wife and four kids, attending dance practices and performances, football practice and games, miniature golf and watching a good movie every now and then at home. Together they enjoy going to their neighborhood playground, the lake, and a family favorite: Disney World (because he’s still a kid at heart).
“My love for humanity is a great inspiration as I see the Lord situated in all of our hearts and the potential for greatness in all of us. It’s always brought me great satisfaction to help others through this journey to find or understand what our true purpose is (to serve God only) and no matter who or what your story is, the Lord loves you just the way you are.”
Earl’s been greatly influenced by his dad who, he says, taught him to be a hard worker, a family provider, and always told him “If you do good, good will always follow you.”
Once upon a time, Earl had a dream that he was the lead singer of Earth, Wind, and Fire. He’d make a great front man.
