The Pride for Parents Christmas Store is a project that comes out of a partnership between the Greater Pleasant Grove Development Corporation, Pleasant Grove Baptist Church, and the entire East Wake community. It works like this. New toys are donated by stores, churches and individuals. We take the toys, mark them down half price or more and set up a store on site and allow parents to shop for their children at Christmastime. In the past, the church participated in give-away programs at Christmas. We learned that many parents were humiliated by having to receive hand-outs and now welcomed the opportunity to provide for their children.
Last Christmas, we served 59 families through the PFP Store!
With that, we also opened a PFP children's store for the children in the Academy where they spent their Leadership Academy Bucks earned for their good choices and good behavior. One student said, when she walked into the store, “This is amazing!” Just what we were going for!
