Amazing Grace Food Pantry has a new and unexpected guest last month.
Christopher lost his job, his car, his phone, and now with unemployment funds depleted, he’s homeless. He walked to Amazing Grace Food Pantry on a Friday, one of our stocking days and not our regular client service day.
Our community partners are so amazing! St Vincent De Paul found him a motel for a couple nights while he waited for an interview at Samaritan Inn. By God’s grace and mercy, He prepared a way for Christopher. He now has shelter, food, a donated bicycle and 2 job interviews lined up.
Thank you SVDP for your prompt action to help this new community friend in need! We may all be in the same storm, but not in the same boat. It takes all of us to help others in need – however God leads 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 30 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.

I found out about Amazing Grace Food Pantry by googling for help in Wylie. Amazing Grace Food Pantry helps my family a lot with nutritious food. All the volunteers are polite and nice. We’ve had bad experiences at other pantries where they made me feel like I was scum because I am poor. Amazing Grace Food Pantry restored my spirit by treating me with dignity.
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!
