Sam Tasby Middle School

Tasby Middle School

Sam Tasby Middle School (6th – 8th) is located in the Vickery Meadow area just south of Ascension. A large number of refugees, particularly from Asian countries live in the area and their needs are great.  DISD contacted Ascension to help establish a food pantry on site so that children could take food home on the weekends.

The pantry is now on site and Ascension through its own food pantry is purchasing food on a regular basis.  As this ministry grows more opportunities will be forthcoming.

Volunteer Opportunities

  • Assist with purchasing food and delivery to Tasby Middle School, generally the first week of the month.
  • Coordinate a “drive” for other needed supplies such as body soap, deodorant, winter coats and other items as needed
