Help us replace our 30-year-old
Your donation will count twice thanks to
a matching grant from
the Baker Foundation of Burleson!
(up to $20,000!)
Once we reach the $20,000 match,
We have an additional $1,000 matching grant
from a long-time Burleson resident who stepped up
to offer another challenge.
So that's a total of $21,000 in matching funds!
Rather donate in person? On North Texas Giving Day, September 21, we're holding a Drive-thru Donation Event at our food pantry - 349 NW Renfro in Burleson. Follow the signs and receive a treat after you donate! Drive-thru times: 7:30-9:00 am and 5:00-7:00 pm
Why do we need a box truck?
After eighteen months of breakdowns, repair bills, and rental fees, we are retiring our thirty-year-old box truck which we received as a donation in 2018. We are looking to replace it with a newer, more reliable model.
Currently, we are renting a truck for our weekly runs to pick up and deliver food. For instance, every Monday we pick up a load of bread from the Bimbo factory. We then distribute that bread not only to our own pantry but also to eight other local food ministries. Throughout the week, we pick up food donations from area grocery stores, and in the future, we're looking to pick up household donations for our Resale Store.
The pickups and deliveries made with our truck directly affect our ever-increasing ministry. Each month, we are seeing 25% more clients than last year, and the needs of our clients continue to rise.
We are grateful to the Baker Foundation of Burleson for blessing us with a matching grant which will double your donation. For every dollar you donate, the Foundation will match your donation dollar for dollar up to $20,000.
Thank you for considering partnering with us on September 21 for North Texas Giving Day. Your support is an encouragement to our board, staff, and volunteers!
Your Harvest House provides food, clothing, and financial assistance to more than 2,400 unduplicated North Texas households each year. Clients apply for financial aid to cover rent/mortgage, utilities, and urgent needs. Our food pantry offers monthly groceries, and families with children have access to increased food aid during the summer months and holiday seasons. We deliver monthly food bundles to seniors living in low-income housing, and we provide bulk foods to eight local food ministries. We offer clothing vouchers for our resale store, and we assist with school supplies and Christmas gifts. In addition to meeting basic needs, we partner with more than ten local organizations to connect clients with services such as stress management, financial counseling, and employment guidance. Our tagline, Feed – Clothe – Restore, sums up our goal to not only provide aid for local residents but also to graduate them out of their need for Harvest House.
