Thank you to Gateway Church who helped supply toilet paper in March and is working on supplying dish soap in April! These are luxuries for struggling families!
Thank you to the Refuge Church who is helping with canned veggies in April – part of the nutritious food supplied each week.
New Building Update:
Keep the pantry in your prayers as we seek donations to complete the new building: AC units, Shelving, Refrigeration, etc., along with pouring sidewalks and resurfacing the parking lot to make it more stable for clients to walk or wheel their carts.
Life is hard, we want to help soften any part of these families struggles.
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.
