Pantry Update 2/18/2017

Great week at Amazing Grace Food Pantry! 103 families were served groceries this week. Thanks to all who generously give their time to give the families a warm welcome and full boxes of food. It’s good to know that these 417 people will have nutritious meals this week. Their situations are often temporary due to illness, job loss or other unforeseen circumstance. Because of your generosity to fill the need of your neighbors, these families can have peace of mind for another week.

Thanks to those who can donate spare change each month. Even a $10 recurring monthly donation can help!

Nutritious food is so important – it impacts health and education.

New Building Update: Currently we’re waiting for electrical layout and County approval of the plans before power can be installed. Hope to have this done in the next 2-3 weeks, then power by end of March. Plans to start framing the inside are underway. We’re still looking for donation of Concrete sidewalk work, so spread the word to those you know who would like an opportunity to give back in this way. Also looking for donations of sheetrock, HVAC and a septic system.

More materials needs are listed at Building Hopeany partial donation for these items will help get the doors open sooner. Warm weather is coming soon – we’d love to have clients in the new facility before it gets hot.

 

The pantry is just a tool for YOU to make a difference in the lives of so many.
Thank you for loving your neighbor with your support!

Meet Gayle. She has been a client off and on for several years. She sought help when her dad had a stroke and she had to quit work to become his caregiver.

Amazing Grace Pantry has helped me survive troubled times due to family health problems. The pantry provides nutritious food that I cannot afford on limited income. The volunteers are friendly and helpful. Thanks to the community for supporting this pantry! I don’t know what I’d do without their help!
