OUTBOUND PARTNERSHIPS

SAM 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:

  • Delivering food to Ascension's food pantry and Tasby generally the second Saturday of the month (3-4 cars are needed).

  • Coordinate a “drive” for other needed supplies such as body soap, deodorant, winter coats, and other items as needed.

  • Assist with Annual Teacher Appreciation Luncheon
