Last week, Amazing Grace Food Pantry loaded up 127 families with a week’s worth of groceries, feeding 514 people.
The families who come often comment on how welcomed they feel and that everyone goes out of their way to serve. Volunteers are kind and gentle with each client. Some of our clients may not have had a kind word spoken to them this week. Financial stress sometimes gets released with harsh words in a family. If Amazing Grace Food Pantry can lighted that burden just a little to make a happier home, it’s all worth it.
New Building Update: More Framing needed over the next 3 weeks. Wiring to begin in June. As funds become available, we move to the next phase… with hopes to open Fall of 2017.
Your prayers, referrals and donations are welcomed in this journey to better serve the food insecure in your community. Pitch in, jump in, be involved!
Life is hard, we want to help soften any part of these families struggles.
I started coming to Amazing Grace Food Pantry in 2016. My wife and I are retired and made ends meet ok until my 35 year old son had a near fatal car accident that left him mentally and physically handicapped. We took him into our home along with his two teenage kids. Our Social Security income isn’t enough to sustain a family of 5 with special needs. Amazing Grace Food Pantry provides nutritious food to last the week. I’m able to come every week for fresh produce and groceries that I couldn’t otherwise afford. Everyone here is hospitable and treats everyone with dignity and respect.
