AGFP served 110 families this week. Along with providing nutritious groceries to 423 people, Target blessed the community with a large donation of new pillows to provide each family. Another volunteer donated a case of shampoo. Still others donated sugar and oil.
Things like these; sugar, pillows and hygiene products are such a special treat for families struggling to make ends meet.
Your prayers, hard work and contributions to support this pantry make a huge impact on the lives of others, both to the families receiving food and to the volunteers helping to sort and distribute products.
New Building Update: Next step is floor treatment, then framing. While this gets done, electric will be run to the building, making way for exterior flatwork. Stay tuned for updates on these and so many other aspects of the new building… pictures are coming soon! Want to help? GREAT! Please call (972) 292-7241 to leave a voicemail message for callback or use our Contact page.
Melissa has a family of 5 and started coming to Amazing Grace Food Pantry in November. She is homeless, although living in a modest motel at the moment. She tried to go to another pantry but missed the opening day or time. They turned her away with only an emergency contact number to call. They never returned her 2 calls, so she sought out another pantry and found Amazing Grace. She is so grateful to have found Amazing Grace Food Pantry where everyone has big hearts. Because of her current situation, she’s not able to cook meals that require more than a microwave. Amazing Grace Food Pantry tailors her box to make it easier for her to make meals at home.
