A Message from our CEO
- Marjorie Vaneskahian Burr -

It's that time of year... to GIVE WHERE YOU LIVE. It is only with your support that ACO is able to provide financial
assistance to pay those high electric bills this month, distribute specially-packed kid-friendly food bags for the summer, and the GED program and Employment Services are active all year long. But, we cannot provide summertime relief to families or continue programs year-round without your gifts. Recently you received a letter or email from me asking for your help to continue these vital services by giving where you live.

With your help ACO can reach more families in need to provide
food for their children this summer. 

Our Food Pantry still needs food for the Kids' Summer Food Program, including:

granola bars        juice boxes             shelf-stable milk and almond 
soups         canned pasta meals        macaroni and cheese cups
fruit cups           dried fruits                      peanut butter and jelly

Our Food Pantry is grateful for Carol  Forrester, a dedicated volunteer who brights up the whole pantry with her smile and  positive outlook. 

After retiring from Dallas ISD, Carol found herself  bored at home. "I retired and I had nothing to do... then I heard about ACO's Treasure Chest, and through them I learned about the Food Pantry and started to volunteer there." 

"I volunteer to help the community and also because at the pantry I get good fellowship, exercise, and it is fun!", said Carol.

Carol started to volunteer at the pantry twice a week, and now she is there four half days a week helping restock the shelves and greet the pantry customers who come through our doors on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
