Pantry Update 8/26/2018

Last week, Amazing Grace Food Pantry provided a week’s worth of groceries to 218 families, totaling 969 adults, children and elderly. This is an 80% increase from the same week last year! Meeting this growing need is only possible with your support and funding. Visit our Donate page to help us help more food insecure families in Collin County and beyond. If you’d prefer to deliver your gift in person, we’d be honored to give you a tour… or schedule your time to volunteer as well! Use our Contact page to get in touch.

Special thanks to Girl Scouts Troop 8068 for volunteering to #FightHunger at Amazing Grace Food Pantry. With their help, 153 kids would receive food for the following week. Helping others always makes a huge impact. Keep up the great work!

Another big thanks to Wylie United Methodist Church. In addition to bringing a donation of cereal, volunteers weighed, marked and sorted a backlog of food items. The group also helped organize and make sorted shelves presentable, and tended to other general tasks.

We LOVE our volunteers and volunteer groups. This mission would not be possible without their dedication and willingness to spend time helping others. Would your church, youth or corporate group like to volunteer? Visit our Volunteer page or call (972) 292-7241 to schedule your group. Be sure to ask what items are in short supply as well… there is always a need.

 

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

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!
