The Pearl Mae Foundation was originally founded to create churches in areas where residents had no access to church. Its mission evolved to provide services and necessities for senior citizens, including food, funding for necessary home repairs, accessibility modifications, and assistance with medical bills.
In the wake of the pandemic in March 2020, Pearl’s Pantry was created. Its original purpose was providing food to any and all seniors who needed it. Since its inception, Pearl’s Pantry has developed into a robust food nutrition program for low-income Seniors with its own case managers and a registered nutritionist providing oversight. The Foundation provides bi-weekly deliveries that includes two-weeks’ worth of fresh produce, eggs, meats, cheeses and specialized shelf-stable items. In other words, we provide an entire years’ worth of food to each of our low-income senior clients, while keeping them healthy and informed throughout the process.
