Last week, Amazing Grace Food Pantry provide a full weeks groceries to 110 families. Thanks to your help, 451 tummies will be full with nutritional food… elderly can better afford their meds, children will concentrate better in school and parents can pay the rent and not worry about what to put on the tables this week.
Special thanks to Chase Oaks Church who provided two full truckloads of donated food today with their annual “Make a Difference 2gether” campaign. You guys are a blessing to the community!
New Building Update:
Plans to start framing the interior walls to begin next week. Keep the project in your prayers as funds are still needed to complete this project. The Building Hope Project will provide a safe environment for workers and more space for clients to shop and to come in out of the weather.
Life is hard, we want to help soften any part of these families struggles.
Wes has a family of 3, with additional 3 grandchildren during the summer months.
He suffered a broken neck 20 years ago which left him partially paralyzed but was able to work delivering pizza for a long time. He lost his job 5 years ago due to his disability and was without food until he found Amazing Grace Food Pantry to meet this need. His condition as declined this year, one leg is now powerless.
With the pantry’s new building being ADA compliant, Wes has easy access to shop for groceries.
