Meet some faithful Thursday Night Volunteers!

August 7th, 2022|Categories: Latest News|

These volunteers don’t skip a beat when it comes to serving others with lots of food every Thursday night! They’re excited to be a part of Amazing Grace Food Pantry where so much is given. They also obtained “bragging rights” with an all-time record breaking number of clients served.

Times are tough for everyone right now, especially for the elderly on fixed income or the other many circumstances causing a scarcity of food in the home. Come, join the fun with your friends and family or just come for a tour to see what it’s all about. Serving others is the best medicine for what might be ailing YOU!

Amazing Grace Food Pantry is exclusively a volunteer organization, relying upon the talent and generosity of community members to procure, sort and distribute over 60 TONS of food every month to area families. This monumental undertaking is only possible due to the altruism and support received each and every week from people just like you.

  • Do you have some free time on your hands?
  • Do you enjoy helping those in need?
  • Do you want to give back in some way that really changes the quality of life for someone?

We also welcome volunteer groups! If your church, youth or corporate group would like to schedule a day to volunteer as a team building exercise, or to regularly adopt group-size tasks (e.g. yard work, improvements, cleanup, etc.), we’d love to hear from you! Call (972) 292-7241 to leave a voicemail message or use use the contact form on our Volunteer page.

No time to volunteer? That’s okay, too! Visit our Donation page to arrange a monthly donation. No amount is too small!

Our Ministry is inside the walls, too. Another heartfelt testimony from a volunteer:

I just wanted to let you know that after working full shift this morning, my daughter, Abigail, went to compete in a junior golf tournament. She placed 3rd and won her first medal! After the award, one of the first things she said was, “I can’t wait until I tell the pantry family.”

Most of you may not know the story, but Abigail quit playing golf since the divorce almost 4 years ago. She started back on tour just this February. Our goal was to win at least one medal and make it to the invitational final tournament. With today’s placing, she has solidified her standing to get invited to the final. Against all the adversity, Abigail has made it through and she is continuing to grow. And being part of the pantry has made such a difference for her. Having a sense of belonging and developing a sense of purpose.

Thank you so much for the care you are showing my children. It may be a small success, but it is such a huge step forward for us.
