The mission of PFPO, is to create a brighter future for those affected by a hurricane or disaster; natural or not. We provide education, vocational training, career placement, holiday toy drives, fundraisers, and events annually to help as many people as we can in the nation. We work with like-minded businesses and organizations to continually create new solutions that we face as a nation, such as hunger, homelessness, and sustainability.
Our annual toy drive is something to get very excited about as we were able to provide food, clothing and toys to over 400,000 families in 2017. We hope we can count on your support this year. Your donations are fully tax deductible amd we encourage you to check our status and validity on irs.gov, TANO SAM and Guidestar.

It's that time again! Tis' the season to shine! Last year we were able to help over 400,000 families that were affected by and survived Hurricane Harvey, and this year we expect to double that in FL, NC, TX, and
MI, by giving them the ONE Christmas we are sure that they will never forget! We provide everything and hand deliver "Christmas" all the way from the Christmas trees and decorations, to the letters from Santa, cookies, and of course whatever their heart desires. We love smiles and hugs!
Our program: We do a mass phone call and read " 'Twas the Night Before Christmas" on Christmas Eve @ 7pm CST. We then deliver the trees and the goodies (if we haven’t already by December 5th or a last minute family gets adopted). . The parents call us as soon as the kiddos are awake and within one hour, Santa and/or Mrs. Clause are standing outside of their front door, to personally hand deliver all of the gifts on Christmas morning. The look in their eyes, as they gleam and sparkle with pure happiness and emotion is surrounding and filling the room. That is why we do this annually this way. There is no other program like this and we hope we can count on your support in making this magic happen again this year. We also have Hope Boxes that can be made and shipped out in just a few days! Please sign up for our mass reading of " 'Twas The Night before Christmas" at 7PM CST by adding yourself to our Facebook group “ ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas“ Here
We had over 4,000 calllers on the line in 2017, and were able to deliver over 500,000 gifts to families that were adopted by us or affected by and survived Hurricane Harvey, and this year we expect to double those numbers. We can’t wait to share the pictures and the impact stories with you! The kids will go to bed Christmas Eve so very excited, we gently guide them to sleep with our reading and then they will wake up to the surprise of a lifetime! You can find the application on our Facebook page; www.facebook.com/pfposaves pinned to the top, or right here on the homepage of our website so that we may begin adopting families in TX, MI, and NC, and FL.
Please visit our Amazon Disiater wishlist from our teams of boots on the ground, and our volunteers located in the hardest hit cities at this time. Our greatest needs at the moment are food, water, diapers, feed, formula, medical supplies, and blankets, jackets, clothing, shoes, pillows, toiletries, gift cards, gasoline, and the basic essentials that most people take for granted every day.

We are here long-term, so we will be the ones rebuilding the affected houses and cities long after other organizations, groups or teams have moved on. Please reach out to us if you'd like to contribute in-kind donations, gift cards, or would like to make a purchase from our Amazon wish list (as it is public).
