Thank you for your support in 2017

Dear Friends,
Thank you, does not begin to express the deep gratitude we have for all the support you have given With Gods Grace for over 2 years. From serving 264 individuals in 2015 to serving a record of 99,358 individuals in 2017. Our families received 894,322 meals to 31,392 families in 2017, to say we have grown is an understatement. We would not have been able to alleviate food insecurity in our cherished community for so long without your steadfast and generous support.

I was recently asked by a family what my most memorable event at With Gods Grace pantry was this past year. Upon contemplating a bit, I realized that working here was more about a series of rewarding and heart-warming experiences than just a single event. It is seeing a kid’s face light up with delight after selecting their Christmas gift at our annual toy giveaway; it’s seeing the relief on a mother’s face when she knows that she will have enough food to give her kids for the next week; it’s overhearing a boy excitedly ask his father if he can eat the fresh apples; and it’s talking to a client and then really understanding just how much With Gods Grace food pantry means to them. Thank YOU for allowing me to experience these truly gratifying moments.

Unfortunately, we expect 2018 to be another record year for With Gods Grace. In Montgomery & surrounding counties, the food insecurity rate is about 1 in 6 people and that number jumps even higher for children, to 1 in 4. We are also working with other organizations to promote nutrition education with our clients at our mobiles locations.

With your ongoing support and confidence, we will continue to diligently build a more food-secure future for our neighbors in need.

Yours Truly,
With Gods Grace
