Amazing Grace Food Pantry closed out September serving 308 families (1279 people!) who no longer have to worry about food on the table. That’s up 10% from August.
As we prepare for the upcoming Holiday Meals for Thanksgiving and Christmas, we urge those with means to support Amazing Grace Food Pantry by donating $3.00 towards a turkey. Every $3 puts a turkey on the table for one family along with all the fixin’s. Your pocket change can change a life and make this a Happy Holiday Season for those neighbors struggling this year.
New Building Update: The crew has poured the front patio. Next up is the awning that will provide shelter during high-traffic times and for self-shopping of bulk items. In addition to its primary function, the awning also serves to “re-center” the offset of the front doors due to the design of the lobby. More updates and pictures coming soon!
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.
