With the help of generous individuals, community food drives, and volunteers, Metrocrest Services was able to provide over 825 families a complete Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday, November 17th.
You gave these families something to be thankful for.
Thank you to everyone who was involved - we couldn't have done it without you.
An online gift of $35 enables our Food Pantry to purchase a complete Thanksgiving dinner, including a turkey, for families in need or a gift of $105 can fill a table for three families that would otherwise be empty. (Please select Thanksgiving/Holiday Food as the 'Fund Designation')
For more information on how to get involved please email Bev Grimley or call (972) 446-2100.
For over 100 low-income seniors who qualify for People and Nutrition (PAN boxes filled with federal commodity foods), our Eat Smart, Live Strong is growing in popularity. With support from program sponsors we provide participants additional fresh produce and healthy foods on their monthly distribution day.
Eat Smart, Live Strong groceries include items such as sweet potatoes, fresh oranges and apples or canned peaches. Once a month participants arrive on their own at our food pantry or may request rides through our transportation service. Pantry volunteers not only assist seniors as they select their items but carry selections to their car or van.
Sponsors are needed to underwrite program costs! Join former sponsors Baylor Scott & White Medical Center Carrollton, PlainsCapital, Purdy-McGuire, Hilton Worldwide and Research Across America in supporting healthy eating for seniors.
