Pantry Update 4/3/2018

What a difference a year makes!

1st Quarter 2018 compared to 1st Quarter 2017
Amazing Grace Food Pantry is providing nutritional food to over 30% more people than last year’s first quarter. The need continues to grow.

Thanks to our sponsors and many volunteers, we opened the doors to new facility the end of March. The Grand Opening scheduled for Friday, April 6th. The client families love the large covered patio with seating and produce shopping, indoor seating and larger indoor shopping area to select more food.

Community Power

In March, we had the privilege to meet and work with these amazing young ladies! Full of energy and respect.
Thank you Lake Point Fuel Team for cleaning out storage room!

Thank you Girl Scout Troop 9374 for stocking shelves!
Their art project was to draw and list what people need. Among the list of food and shelter, they listed “each other”…  these are our future leaders!

Call 972-292-7241 to schedule a tour or volunteer day with your family, youth group or scouts this summer. One hour, or a whole day, that will change your life!

I have visited Amazing Grace Food Pantry at times when life hits hard. Every time I have come, I have been greeted like a friend and my kids have been shown such love and attention. They always give enough food to make it through the week! I love you guys!

Take the time to read some of the testimonials from clients and volunteers on our website. Volunteer or donate this year. It will bless you!

Please share this and our other posts on your Facebook timeline, tweet it out on Twitter or forward via email. Many people looking to help or looking for help don't even know that ours and other pantries exist. Let others know there's help for them out there!
