The Hangar Drive-Thru Food Pantry Needs

Kingsland Baptist, Grace Fellowship, and The Fellowship — three Katy churches — are underwriting and assisting The Hangar Unity Center in Brookshire with a drive-thru food pantry. A division of Eyes On Me Inc, The Hangar serves at-risk families in Brookshire. Last week approximately 350 families in Brookshire received food boxes through this compassionate initiative. This week we will provide produce and protein boxes for families in need.

You are invited to join the initiative by providing any of the food items listed below.

• canned vegetables
• canned beans
• canned fruit
• fruit cups
• pasta products
• pasta / spaghetti sauces
• canned chili
• canned soups
• canned tuna or chicken
• tuna packets

The Fellowship
, located at 22265 Westheimer Parkway, serves as the drop-off location for food contributions. The Fellowship is receiving items Mondays through Thursdays this week and next between the hours of 8:00 AM and Noon.

To prevent human to human contact, please enter from Westheimer Parkway and drive through the portico at the end of the NextGen Building which faces Westheimer Parkway. Please place your donated food items in the boxes on the carts provided at the door to the building. No need to wait to hand items to anyone.

Thank you for giving to help families in Brookshire make it through this season of sheltering in place.

YoungLives Update

YoungLives is a ministry for pregnant and parenting teens. We have groups all over the city of Houston, and also one just for teen moms in the Katy area. We have a team of volunteers who offer friendship and mentorship to the girls. We usually meet in person each week, but right now we are getting creative so that we can still connect with girls. We are offering Bible Study and Hang Out times over FaceTime, Zoom and other virtual platforms, are able to do porch deliveries of diapers, formula, and other essentials items and throughout this stay at home time will continue to find ways to offer community and connection to teen moms in Katy!

If you are interested in learning more or know a teen mom who needs some community and encouragement reach out to Katie Martin.
Thank you!
