PAANC works closely with other local and international communities and non-profits on an ongoing basis to expand its reach and advance its mission.
PAANC Partners with . . .
PAANC joins forces with North Carolina Asian-Americans Together (NCAAT) on civic engagement efforts. NCAAT is a nonprofit organization devoted to increasing the Asian-American and Pacific Islander representation and voice in North Carolina through building up and motivating an electorate throughout the state, naturalization workshops, and leadership development opportunities.
PAANC partners with the Philippine Nurses Association of North Carolina (PNANC) to support The Philippine Embassy in Washington DC’s outreach services in North Carolina. As part of their consular outreach mission, the Embassy accepts applications for Philippine passport issuance, renewal, and amendments of entries; legalization of documents; civil registry documents (birth, marriage, death); and oath of allegiance for dual citizenship.
SFA ON HUNGER RELIEF MINISTRY
In partnership with St. Francis of Assisi in Raleigh, PAANC Outreach Committee participates in Panera’s Day-End Dough-Nation program through which thousands of pounds of unsold bread and baked goods are donated to those in need in our community and the surrounding areas. Our outreach coordinator recruits and schedules volunteers to pick up and deliver these goods to local food pantries and low-income senior centers weekly.
For more information, or if interested in volunteering with this ministry, please contact us.
FILIPINO-AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF JACKSONVILLE, NC
PAANC teamed up with the Bayanihan Filipino-American Association of Jacksonville to increase our impact in the Taal recovery efforts after the volcano erupted in January of this year, leaving thousands of villagers displaced and losing their only source of livelihood as farmlands were destroyed.
We look forward to future collaborations with this newly formed non-profit.
CARITAS, PHILIPPINES IN THE RELIEF EFFORT
PAANC offers assistance to communities affected by disasters (natural or otherwise) through our partnership with Caritas, which delivers basic necessities and helps in the recovery and rebuilding of devastated communities.
Caritas, Philippines is the social services and development arm of the Archdiocese of Manila.
PAANC takes a stance against human trafficking through our support of People’s Recovery Empowerment Development Assistance Foundation (PREDA), a Philippine human rights social development organization whose mission is to help the most vulnerable people in society and overcome injustice and poverty. PREDA provides direct action for abused children, rescuing them from abusive situations and protecting them. Their goal is to “help people realize their dignity, rights, and potential; that they are important and of value.”
