Giving back is part of Grayson County’s decorum and many feel especially called to do so during the holiday season. In the spirit of giving, Grand Central Station needs your support in different ways.  We have volunteer opportunities; donations are always welcome both food and monetary.  Other needs include tents, blankets, socks, hats, and gloves! We turn to YOU, to make sure we are able to fulfill our purpose.  Families have been struggling throughout the pandemic, and Thanksgiving may be the perfect time to give back. Your donation will help in many ways.

Grand Central Station is thrilled to announce some new changes coming up! The Green House Food Pantry is changing its name and model to The Market Depot! Over the next several weeks, we will be converting our website and social media pages, and you will see several posts communicating our name change. Thank you all for your continued support!

While our primary mission is to assist the neighbors with food, this name change allows us to better convey the function of our organization once we move to our new location.  The Green House will be changing from a Food Pantry, to The Market Depot’s Choice Pantry model.  A Client Choice Pantry allows clients to select their own food instead of receiving a pre-packed or standard bag of groceries. With this method, clients do not have to take items they already have, do not like, or cannot eat for health reasons.  Our operations today have become larger in scale, taking us beyond, creating innovative ways to assist our “neighbors” in need.

With 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 between 120 – 160 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 Market Depot/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.

Our partnership with TAPS, delivering shelf-stable food to our shut-in Seniors will continue through October.     Give the Market Depot/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.
