Wylie ISD sponsored their yearly Back To School Fair at First Baptist Wylie Saturday, August 10th.
1,000 kids received an abundance of school supplies & backpacks. Many got a complimentary haircut and immunization shots too.
Amazing Grace Food Pantry was one of the many resources at the event to meeting families in need and letting them know about our pantry to help put healthy food on their tables.
1 in every 4 kids in North Texas is food insecure. Children who grow up in food insecure households often lag behind their food-secure peers in terms of cognitive, emotional, and physical development.
When you support Amazing Grace Food Pantry, you give 2000 kids a chance for a healthy future.

I was released from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice yesterday and received a food pantry voucher from the Texas Department of Health and Human Services. The volunteers were amazing and very helpful and promoted a positive atmosphere and very cheerful. I never expected this kind of positive attitude from people outside of the rudeness and depravity of the penitentiary. These volunteers are doing a very noble service to the community and I am very thankful that they are close to where I live. God bless you and thank you.
