This week Amazing Grace Food Pantry had the privilege to serve nutritional groceries to 126 families in Collin County – that’s over 530 people that won’t go hungry this week. Each family received over 90 pounds of grocery staples including fresh fruit, veggies, cheese and lots of meat for meals for the week.
We lift up those having to relocate from south Texas due to Hurricane Harvey. For those in Collin County and in need of emergency assistance, we’re here to help put food on the table during this disaster.
New Building Update: The sheetrock is going up! Hope to complete sheetrock by mid September. Anyone willing to put in a couple hours over Labor Day weekend to sheetrock or tape and bed is welcomed to help!
Karen discussed with me about one year ago the need to get involved in a community service activity. We have been retired a few years and needed to do some volunteering. Karen looked for a pantry to volunteer in and selected Amazing Grace because of the people, the process, and how it helps those in our local area, where she and I live. After a few months I decided to join her one day and am really glad I did. Neither of us had a lot growing up, and there were times that my family when I was a child had no food and we relied on assistance. We discovered what a tremendous group of people have accomplished through this organization toward providing meals to those in need whether it be long term or short term. The process is very solid and we are proud to be a part of such an organization.
Jesus teaches us that we are to serve and we are to feed people, both physically and spiritually. We have made many new friends by volunteering at Amazing Grace and have discovered that regardless of where we are in our own walk, our mission is clear. That is provide a means for people to obtain food where a means may not otherwise exist. The leadership of Amazing Grace exemplifies what Jesus taught and we are proud to be a part of an organization that is so focused on defeating hunger in our county.
