Last week was raining and cold, but Amazing Grace Food Pantry still served 111 families with lots of fresh produce and groceries to make their Christmas dinner and week complete. The pantry had an added treat and gave out lots of stuffed animals this year.
Awesome teams of volunteers came this week to help stock shelves and serve the community. Thank you for taking time during your Christmas Break to help Fight Hunger Together! The kiddo’s energy and enthusiasm is contagious!
Thanks to the many organizations and families, St Anthony’s Catholic Church, Wells Fargo Advisors, Girl Scouts and Plano Pantry to name a few, who dropped off food donations this week making it possible to serve hundreds of families with nutritional food.
January is National Soup Month
Hunger doesn’t stop at Christmas. January is a rough month for those struggling to make ends meet with the higher heating bills. Drop off canned soup any Tuesday, Friday or Saturday 9am-11am to warm hearts and Fight Hunger Together!
Meet Julianna. She is a single mother of 4 and receives no child support. The Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County referred her to Amazing Grace Food Pantry for assistance.
I’m so thankful for Amazing Grace Food Pantry! Without this help, my children would go hungry. We enjoy the variety of food items, fresh produce and special treats that are available. Because of the pantry’s help, my kids don’t know we are food-insecure. We have food on the table now. Thank you Amazing Grace and all who support this
