Great week at Amazing Grace Food Pantry! 103 families were served groceries this week. Thanks to all who generously give their time to give the families a warm welcome and full boxes of food. It’s good to know that these 417 people will have nutritious meals this week. Their situations are often temporary due to illness, job loss or other unforeseen circumstance. Because of your generosity to fill the need of your neighbors, these families can have peace of mind for another week.
Thanks to those who can donate spare change each month. Even a $10 recurring monthly donation can help!
Nutritious food is so important – it impacts health and education.

New Building Update: Currently we’re waiting for electrical layout and County approval of the plans before power can be installed. Hope to have this done in the next 2-3 weeks, then power by end of March. Plans to start framing the inside are underway. We’re still looking for donation of Concrete sidewalk work, so spread the word to those you know who would like an opportunity to give back in this way. Also looking for donations of sheetrock, HVAC and a septic system.
More materials needs are listed at Building Hope – any partial donation for these items will help get the doors open sooner. Warm weather is coming soon – we’d love to have clients in the new facility before it gets hot.
The pantry is just a tool for YOU to make a difference in the lives of so many.
Thank you for loving your neighbor with your support!
I was released from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice yesterday and received a food pantry voucher from the Texas Department of Health and Human Services. The volunteers were amazing and very helpful and promoted a positive atmosphere and very cheerful. I never expected this kind of positive attitude from people outside of the rudeness and depravity of the penitentiary. These volunteers are doing a very noble service to the community and I am very thankful that they are close to where I live. God bless you and thank you.
