Impacting our Neighbors at Amazing Grace Mission

Impacting Neighbors Amazing Grace Mission

Amazing Grace Mission delivers "Friday Meals" to seniors at low income apartment complexes for 55+/disabled residents. During one such session, they met a resident who was not a part of the program.  They asked if she would like to be added to Friday Meals and if she was in need of anything else.  She is disabled and mainly uses her wheelchair but is able to stand and walk some.  However, she doesn't drive. During the conversation, the woman admitted that her sister had been having to help her with food and items the last week of every month because her money runs out.  The elderly woman was added her to Amazing Grace Mission's home delivery program and now receives dry and frozen/fresh food twice monthly, paper products, pet food, toiletries, etc.  She says she now has no worries of going without food.  

Another resident of the same low-income apartment complex saw an Amazing Grace Mission Facebook post about their weekly food distribution times at their Westmoreland facility.  She contacted them to say that due to her husband's dialysis appointments, she could not make the Wednesday distribution times.  She leaves their apartment at 5:30 a.m. and returns around 1:30 or 2:00 p.m.  They signed her up for their home delivery program so she wouldn't have to worry about trying to schedule doctor's appointments around the food distribution time.

A third local resident at the complex fell and broke his hip.  He then went through several rounds of chemotherapy and radiation, fell, and broke the opposite hip a few months later.  He was sent home with hospice.  Amazing Grace Mission was able to assist with the cost of gas to get to and from doctor's appointments in Nashville, hospital stays, and the never-ending errands to pick up prescriptions.  They also supplied food and paper products to support the family as their loved one went through his last days.
