Pantry Update 7/3/2018

Amazing Grace Food Pantry continues to increase the amount of nutritious food to more and more families in Collin County. In June, over 62,000 pounds of food was distributed. With healthy fresh produce choices like watermelon, potatoes, carrots and broccoli to name a few. This Tuesday was no different. Volunteers served 73 families, including 3 from Garland. While we serve Collin County, no one is turned away. We provide information about resources closer to home and assist them with their needs for the week… just in case.

The first of the month is a special time for us. We get to provide clients with cleaning and hygiene products, along with other monthly non-food items. These products are always in short supply, but are a welcomed addition as they make affording bills, mortgages and other expenses easier for our clients. In addition to providing monthly support for the pantry, donating cleaning and hygiene products is another great way to help.

Did You Know?

Volunteers at Amazing Grace carry boxes of donated food to clients’ cars. This added service is especially appreciated during hot summer days as well as during inclement weather. Amazing Grace Food Pantry is exclusively a volunteer organization… that’s right, no one receives a salary. We are all volunteers, dedicated to helping those in need. This is only possible with YOUR help. Visit our Donate page to arrange a recurring monthly donation. No amount is too small. Use our Contact page to schedule a tour to visit and find out how awesome this little pantry is!

Happy Birthday Brooklyn

Brooklyn held her 9th birthday party at Amazing Grace to help the community.

Thank you for allowing Brooklyn and her friends come to Amazing Grace on Saturday. It was so impactful and I think the girls left with a feeling of not only gratitude for what they have but also with a feeling of empowerment, knowing that they can help contribute and make a difference. I appreciate you taking the time to let them know about the work you do and why our community is in need of a food pantry. Thank you for all you do for our community and for opening your doors to us. May God continue to bless you and those you serve.

With gratitude,
Jenn
