Pantry Update 8/28/2017

This week Amazing Grace Food Pantry had the privilege to serve nutritional groceries to 126 families in Collin County – that’s over 530 people that won’t go hungry this week. Each family received over 90 pounds of grocery staples including fresh fruit, veggies, cheese and lots of meat for meals for the week.

We lift up those having to relocate from south Texas due to Hurricane Harvey. For those in Collin County and in need of emergency assistance, we’re here to help put food on the table during this disaster.

New Building Update:  The sheetrock is going up! Hope to complete sheetrock by mid September. Anyone willing to put in a couple hours over Labor Day weekend to sheetrock or tape and bed is welcomed to help!

Lori - AGFP Client Testimonial

Lori started coming to Amazing Grace Food Pantry for assistance end of 2016. She moved to Texas last year after her 4 yr old daughter’s death. She is care taker for 2 elderly in-laws.

Amazing Grace Food Pantry is one of the only pantries in the area that provides such a wide variety of food and provides hygiene products that I just can’t afford. Everyone is so nice and helpful. Thank you for your service in helping our time of need. I struggle with depression over the loss of my baby girl. I look forward to the new building and any counseling classes you may offer.

Take the time to read some of the testimonials from clients and volunteers on our website. Volunteer or donate this year. It will bless you!

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!
