Provide for the underserved
A hopeful and nourished community in Body, Soul, and Spirit
We provide food, tools for learning, advocacy, and life solutions, for our neighbors in need, in an environment of safety.
The Coronavirus doesn’t stop us from providing for our neighbors in need…….
Grand Central Station’s volunteers continue its work, feeding the hungry, by preparing bags to be picked up outside while maintaining social distancing!
With schools closed and many people out of work indefinitely as a result of Covid – 19 pandemic, more individuals and families are needing emergency food assistance.
These are tough times for all, though Grand Central Station is doing well under the circumstances! Our staff and volunteers have been amazing at finding creative and safe ways to still meet the needs of our neighbors. The resilient spirit of Grand Central Station is ringing true right now and with support from many individuals, foundations, and businesses it makes our work glorifying, when we are surprised with an extra “lift” from this great community. Cases of water, chips, cookies, luncheon meat as well as monetary donations are coming in to help us feed our neighbors in need. This is truly how God works! No matter how many donations come in, we are still in awe.
Our Soup Kitchen, the Dining Car hasn’t skipped a beat handing out at least 100 bagged meals each day at our door and still providing coffee and breakfast items for the early birds! Our dedicated volunteers are making sure no one goes hungry. We are providing enough food for the weekend, handing out extra bags on Friday’s. Our commitment to serve is about the need, and YES, we are open for Memorial Day, no questions asked!
Our Green House Food Pantry has changed its delivery process to ensure safety and protection for our volunteers and clients as well. We have changed from a “walk in pantry” to a “drive-thru pantry”. At first, nobody was sure how the system would work, but with volunteers standing outside directing traffic and ushering those on foot through the line — in rain and windy conditions — the system has proved remarkably efficient. Our clients are appreciative and adapting to the changes. We have also partnered with TAPS, delivering food items to our Senior shut ins. Give the Green House a call any Monday, Wednesday, or Friday from 1 pm – 4 pm at (903) 868-2604.
Great News! Grand Central Station is in the final stages of our building expansion at 619 E. Houston Street in Sherman. Once we get through this virus, please call to schedule a tour of our facility if you are interested in seeing our progress.
