February 29th, we celebrated our volunteers with lunch, crafts, entertainment and prizes – Texas style!
Thanks to Mayor Hogue to brought lots of laughter with his Magic of Motivation presentation and to Ann and Clark Sutton for making a memorable Craft piece with the kiddos! Special acknowledgement to St Anthony’s Catholic Church who opened their kitchen, hall and arms to help us celebrate all the amazing volunteers who gave their time and love to those in need by supporting Amazing Grace Food Pantry!
2019 was a record year at Amazing Grace Food Pantry and 2020 forecast is to exceed this record by 20% already! Over 1.3 million pounds of food distributed to 1440 families in 2019 throughout Collin County. See how you can help in 2020 – Make A Difference by Fighting Hunger Together with us!

Casey had a stroke 2 years ago, leaving him disabled and without a car. He doesn’t want to impose on anyone to call for help. He, instead, uses a walker to go to Amazing Grace Food Pantry 8 miles away for food. Often passersby will give him a lift and another client or pantry volunteer will take him home. Recently, Deputy Acosta gave Casey a lift to pantry and waited till he finished shopping then took him home. We can’t praise our Collin County Sherriff’s office enough for caring for each member of our community.
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!
