It’s hard to know what goes through a child’s mind when they’re worried about going hungry. As parents, we do our best to protect our kids from the hardships of life. But kids know. And sometimes they do things to protect us but Amber isn’t worried about food anymore, thanks to you!

Thank you for your day of service!
The Mansfield Church of Christ graciously volunteered their time to clean and prepare the Community Garden for the spring planting! They provided mulch and soil to prepare the garden for planting new vegetables. They also cleaned and weeded all the garden area and turned over the soil to add mulch and compost for fertilization.
We appreciate all of their hard work and their efforts in helping us prepare for the spring garden, which will provide fresh lettuce, tomatoes, onions and peppers to our patrons.

Thank you to our Sponsors and everyone who came out Saturday in their best and most prized 80’s attire to support the HIM Center and the people of Tarrant county.
The event, coined “Back to the 80s Prom”, highlighted the important work the HIM Center is doing for those undergoing unforeseen economic difficulties – families hit hard by circumstances beyond their control who come to HIM Center for fresh and healthy groceries.
The event kicked off with a real-life testimony from “John”, who grew up in various orphanages, going from place to place, without a stable upbringing. He stressed the importance of the work the HIM Center is doing for not just families, but also youth who lack a solid path in life.
We also heard stories from “Anna” and “Megan” about their hopeful experience with HIM Center. Anna experienced a traumatic layoff after getting sick and needed help just to survive. HIM Center helped Anna and her four grandchildren currently living with her.
Megan experienced a series of tragic events in her life, including sexual abused while in the military service and abuse from her 1st husband and 2nd husband, the murder of her father, and then a traumatic car accident, which forced her to resign from her job. Megan was dealing with an emotional hurricane and didn’t have help with just the basic necessities for her and her family. HIM Center made sure she and her family had the food and items they needed to make it through the storm.
All event proceeds will benefit the deserving families and needy in Tarrant County.
