Pantry Update 5/22/2017

Last week, Amazing Grace Food Pantry provided groceries to 134 Collin and Dallas county families… that’s 555 people that won’t have to worry about their next meal for a week!

Thank You to the dedicated team of volunteers who buzz around to support and Fight Hunger Together by picking up donations, unloading and stocking food, help with the new building project and serve the families in need with a warm smile and extra care. Every day we hear from our clients who appreciate the friendly atmosphere and the variety of nutritious food available at Amazing Grace Food Pantry.

This is all made possible by YOU, the community. Everyone shares a part: monthly recurring donations, scheduling to volunteer and arranging a tour by calling (972) 292-7241 to better understand the need.

THANK YOU Gateway Church for your food drive donation! 250lbs of canned goods will go a long way in the Fight Against Hunger this week!

Life is hard, we want to help soften any part of these families struggles.

Client testimonial from Melissa

Meet Melissa,

Melissa has a family of 5 and started coming to Amazing Grace Food Pantry in November. She is homeless, although living in a modest motel at the moment.  She tried to go to another pantry but missed the opening day or time. They turned her away with only an emergency contact number to call. They never returned her 2 calls, so she sought out another pantry and found Amazing Grace. She is so grateful to have found Amazing Grace Food Pantry where everyone has big hearts. Because of her current situation, she’s not able to cook meals that require more than a microwave. Amazing Grace Food Pantry tailors her box to make it easier for her to make meals at home.

 

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!
