Pender Alliance Council

Pender County Christian Services (PCCS) and Willard Outreach Organization (WOO) have teamed up to better serve Pender County families in need. The Pender Alliance Council Resource Center is housed at the Willard Outreach Community Center, 9955 NC Hwy 11 Willard, NC 28478. New partnership programs include food security, youth programs, disaster relief, and other human services.

Both organizations will continue to operate independently as well. All PCCS food programs–including TEFAP, Healthy Opportunities, and weekly distribution are now located in Willard, while the thrift store and some administrative offices remain at the Fremont Street location in Burgaw. The PAC has combined efforts to upgrade the historic school building that now houses the Resource Center. The group has expanded food distribution, increased educational outreach throughout the county, offers workforce training, and provides disaster and crisis relief. The Council is adding new community partners to maximize the service scope.

The Pender Alliance Council is governed by a joint board including PCCS and WOO board members and led by the Executive Directors of both organizations. This joint board held its first meeting on August 10 to elect officers, enact mission and vision statements, and establish short- and long-term goals.
