We want to let you know that we are still here, standing strong and meeting the critical needs of our neighbors.
Right now, because of COVID-19, many individuals have had an unexpected loss of income and are unable to get the basic necessities they need to care for their families. We are seeing an increase in need for assistance already and expect this to continue.
A lot has changed over the past month:
We experienced a 58% increase in March applications for assistance and provided an
additional 5,000 meals
50% of March clients are NEW
applicants and our food pantry visits are
up by 23%.
Client appointments with our case managers are conducted via teleconferencing, with new client applications accepted in the Agency lobby or
by calling 972-335-9495
to set up an appointment.
Food Pantry access for clients remains drive-thru only or delivered to their homes if they are seniors or home-bound, and we accept Food Pantry donations with social distancing enforced.
We've suspended our volunteer recruitment, orientations and adult life-skills classes for the time being.
Frisco Resale is temporarily closed and we are now accepting new and gently used donations on
Thursday, Friday, Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing continues multiple times throughout the day at all locations, along with "flu-season hygiene," as it is imperative that everyone does his or her part to help prevent the spread of this virus.
From the youngest, to those we have helped in the past, to our faith-based partners, we want to thank everyone who donated to Frisco's only community food pantry last week. (Check out just some of our wonderful supporters below!)
