Tuesday Update 8/2/2016

Over 200 people received groceries!

Volunteers and donors make this pantry operation run with a warm welcome to families in need in our neighborhoods. It’s a blessing to know these families won’t go to bed hungry this week.

Thank you to the 14 volunteers who pitched in today to pick up donations, carry food to clients’ vehicles, sort food and stock shelves. Even in this August heat, one volunteer mowed the lawn. Two others dove into spring cleaning mode, scrubbing walls and baseboards.

Does your organization need a team building project this year? Consider volunteering at North Texas Food Bank. For every 2.5 hour shift, NTFB credit Amazing Grace Food Pantry for acquiring food.
