Volunteer Profile: Grace Presbyterian Church

Thank you to the youth and sponsors of Grace Presbyterian Church from Round Rock, Texas, for volunteering today at the Community Food Bank. Eight teenagers and 3 adult sponsors spent the morning filling and delivering boxes on our food pantry line. Brad Chapin, one of the adult sponsors, shared about his church’s program: “We are trying to get outside of our community and expose them to needs. Every year, we try to take them to a different atmosphere with different needs. We did a partnership with First Presbyterian Church of Fort Worth about 5 years ago on a mission project called Urban Gaps. It’s really entrenched in the Fort Worth community and addresses poverty, homelessness, and other needs in the community. What have heard about the Community Food Bank is that it’s kind of a grass-roots food bank–a little different from some of the other ones that get a lot of funding. This piqued our interest, and we wanted to get involved.” The group plans to have lunch at the Taste Project and also visit Six Flags over Texas before their 3-hour drive back home to Round Rock. We are thankful for their service!
