We Need Help!!

As the needs of the community grow, the Community Caring Center grows with it. We are currently receiving (and giving out) double the amount of food from the Tarrant Area Food Bank than we have in previous years and the community continues to step up and donate incredible amounts of food. This leaves us with a need for a good used van or pickup truck to help make our weekly rounds. If you or anyone you know has a van or pickup truck you would like to donate, please give Joe a call at 817-270-2962. It would be such a blessing!

He stood, head down, cap in his hand.

This was the stance of a very beaten man.

"I’ve not had a job for two years”, he said with a trembling voice.

"My family has to eat…I had no other choice”.

"Don’t beat yourself down”, said the man at the desk.

"We are here to help you be your very best”.

"Some food, some clothes, and a friendly smile.

A prayer for you to find a job, we’ll go the country mile”.

"Here at the Center we give a helping hand.

So you can be just how God calls you to stand.”

"So be encouraged and do not have a doubt.

And receive a hand up, not just a hand out”.
