Pantry Update – November 2017

Amazing Grace Food Pantry served 319 families during November with nutritious groceries – some every week, others less often, but all received an abundance for their Thanksgiving table – thanks to YOUR faithful support!

Through your community support:  98 seniors have a little less to worry about and won’t skip a meal. 585 children have proper nutrition to build strong bodies and minds for a healthier future.

Along with neighbors donating volunteer hours and canned goods for families, we’d like to thank Operation Kindness for pet food donations! Pets are an important part of a family and need proper nutrition, too.

Fundraising Announcement: Painting with a Purpose is holding a fundraising event featuring Wylie Painting with a Twist artists teaching the painting “Cherry Harvest”. All proceeds, every penny, from this event will go to Amazing Grace Food Pantry to help in the Fight Against Hunger in the Wylie community. Join us January 22nd.

Happy Birthday Brooklyn

Brooklyn held her 9th birthday party at Amazing Grace to help the community.

Thank you for allowing Brooklyn and her friends come to Amazing Grace on Saturday. It was so impactful and I think the girls left with a feeling of not only gratitude for what they have but also with a feeling of empowerment, knowing that they can help contribute and make a difference. I appreciate you taking the time to let them know about the work you do and why our community is in need of a food pantry. Thank you for all you do for our community and for opening your doors to us. May God continue to bless you and those you serve.

With gratitude,
Jenn

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!
