Our awesome volunteers provided a full grocery cart to 161 families this week along with Thanksgiving fixin’s and clients’ choice of turkey or ham. Thanks to North Texas Food Bank (@NTFB) for providing lots of Butter Lettuce and Pears on the produce delivery! We don’t forget the pets, always plenty of cat and dog food and treats available.
Thanks to you for helping 659 people in Collin County with nutritious food and peace of mind to make a Happy Thanksgiving.
Twelve McKinney Christian Middle School students and their teacher blessed our Friday by coming out to stock shelves and make up Thanksgiving meal packages. They had the pantry buzzing with energy!
New Building Update: Thank you Dallas Glass and Door for installing the storefront doors. They really make the new building professional and inviting! A big thanks to Paul G and his team from LDS Church for coming out every Saturday to hang drywall. This week was no exception – they rocked it! We’re close to texture and paint – can’t wait!!
We welcome volunteers to help finish out the new pantry building which will offer a larger shopping area for families (and so much more!). Also, if you’re a building professional, we welcome your advice… we have a vision, but we are truly working on faith with this project.
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.
