Amazing Grace Food Pantry provided groceries to 115 families this week, 431 people, with fresh fruit and veggies along with staples and meats to put meals on the table.
Many of the families come once a week. When available, there are extra items given out such as hygiene products, diapers and cleaning products. These are a big help to families struggling to make ends meet. Thanks to the community donations – from people like you – just donating $20 monthly helps others in a huge way! That’s just forfeiting 1 Starbucks a week. Consider arranging a recurring donation at our donation page… it’s easy!
New Building Update: We’re searching for help and advice on the warehouse ceiling. The options that we know of are drywall or drop-ceiling. We’re open to suggestions and help. Call 972-292-7241, leave voicemail and we’ll return your call ASAP.
Also, THANK YOU Bloomfield Homes for donating lumber! With your help, the framing will be complete in the next week or so (yay!).
Life is hard, we want to help soften any part of these families struggles.

I have volunteered at other pantries in Collin County in the past, but Amazing Grace Food Pantry ranks #1 in my book. They provide good food choices, food that people would want to buy for themselves if they could. The vibe here is awesome! It’s got a good family vibe, everyone is so nice. Reggie greets everyone with a big smile and makes clients feel welcomed and unashamed of their current financial struggle. This pantry has really motivated me to Pay It Forward in 2017!
Please share this and our other posts on your Facebook timeline, tweet it out on Twitter or forward via email. Many people looking to help or looking for help don't even know that ours and other pantries exist. Let others know there's help for them out there!
