Our food pantry benefits from donations of food. Monetary donations* are used for our pantry and assistance programs such as rent and utility bills. $1.00 enables us to purchase enough groceries for three meals from the North Texas Food Bank, so we are always grateful for financial support. Your gently used clothes and household items are always appreciated. Unfortunately, we cannot take mattresses, large furniture, or electronics.
Our year long fundraiser is our thrift shop. Open to the public, it is a great place to find gently used clothing and household items.
Whether working in the food pantry or the thrift shop, there’s always something to keep a volunteer busy. We are so blessed by those who are generous with their time and energy!
Your prayers of support are needed and appreciated! Please pray for the success of our program, our Board and staff, and most especially, our clients.
We look forward to meeting you!
We are proud of what we do and
would enjoy giving you a tour.
