But thanks be to God, who always leads us in Christ’s triumphal procession and through us spreads the aroma of the knowledge of him in every place. 

-2 Corinthians 2:14


Our numbers have been fairly consistent over the last month however summer arrived way too early this year. The work is hot and exhausting so we hope the aroma we are spreading is that of Christ and not our bodies! Despite the heat though, we persevere as the need continues. Thanks always to our fantastic volunteers!


We always have a need for diapers and those heavy duty HEB bags! 


An outdoor stand alone donation box is now in place in the back by the ramp! 


Since the Free Store is no longer operating, please donate food items, toilet paper, diapers etc ONLY!
