Outbound Update and How you Can Help



Over the last 18 months or so, Outbound has continued its mission to serve. We have kept our every other Tuesday morning Food Pantry during the pandemic, although we have had to change to a drive-thru model. We have served lasagnas at Austin Street and purchased breakfasts when they were needed. We gathered books for Kids U, and last year purchased turkeys for their clients for Thanksgiving. These are just a few of the projects we have continued and enhanced during a national health crisis. We were able to do this because you have donated money generously and because of our tireless and dedicated volunteers. There is more to do, especially with refugee relocation to Dallas restarting. We have donated food and household goods to refugees when they arrive in their new apartments. Since they don't have cars, we would like to purchase large cooking pots for large families and small grocery carts so refugees can use them to get food. We also want to fund a storage facility for Refugee Services of Texas for a year, so they have a place to store donated items - this is urgent since their facility is only funded through the middle of December. How can you help? Well, we have restricted funds accounts that can only be used for specific missions. For instance, Food Pantry dollars can only be used for Food Pantry. Outbound dollars can be used for any Outbound project, including Food Pantry. You can help, if you agree with our vision, by earmarking funds for Outbound, not necessarily for Food Pantry. This would allow us to use the funds for any of our projects - Food Pantry, Tasby Food Pantry, Austin Street, refugee services, etc. Many, many thanks to all of you who support us. We are so blessed and grateful to be part of a church family that is so generous. If you have any questions, please contact me, Audry Lee, at 972-259-0687 or 1222aalee@gmail.com.
