Amazing Grace Food Pantry completed its last client service for 2018 on Saturday, December 29th. Volunteers returned Tuesday, January 1st to make sure none of our pantry family goes hungry this new year’s week.
Moving into the new, larger building in March has allowed better service to people in need. Our senior citizen count increased from 141 to 342 since they no longer have to wait outside in the weather. We welcome the challenge of a new year and look forward to being a place where more giving hearts can meet that challenge as well… supporting, giving, and serving to make a real difference in people’s lives.
Thank you volunteers, donors and our Board for a truly amazing year and thank you for making it possible to distribute tons of food!
$10 = food for a month for a family!
Because of your contributions, over 4600 people received 625,000 meals throughout the year!
Melissa has a family of 5 and started coming to Amazing Grace Food Pantry in November. She is homeless, although living in a modest motel at the moment. She tried to go to another pantry but missed the opening day or time. They turned her away with only an emergency contact number to call. They never returned her 2 calls, so she sought out another pantry and found Amazing Grace. She is so grateful to have found Amazing Grace Food Pantry where everyone has big hearts. Because of her current situation, she’s not able to cook meals that require more than a microwave. Amazing Grace Food Pantry tailors her box to make it easier for her to make meals at home.
