THE GREEN HOUSE

For over 40 years, the Greenhouse/Key Care Mission food pantry and clothes closet has served homeless and underserved visitors with food and clothing at no cost. No appointment is needed, only an ID for each family member. Located at 921 E. Houston in Sherman, The Greenhouse is open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 1-4 pm. In 2016 they served 2,706 Families, and 7,788 individuals. 123,861 pounds of food and 27, 017 clothing & household items were given out. In 2016 over 45 volunteers served 3,255 hours.

The Green House program continues to grow throughout the county. It currently requires approximately 30 regular weekly volunteers. Because of the efficiencies of the volunteer program coordinators, procedures are streamlined and distribution time is reduced.
