The daughter, Terri Patton, of Dick and Verna Parsons made a wonderful donation in remembrance of all the years her parents volunteered at the Denton community Food Center. Dick was especially helpful to me with I first started volunteering at DCFC. I miss his kind wisdom and knowledge of the food pantry processes.

The Food Center received a wonderful donation as part of a secret Santa gift by James Greycheck to his sister-in-law, Carolyn McGannon. What a great family!


 

Evan and Cathy Wenger made a wonderful donation to the Food Center in honor of Mary Hummel and Tom Kokotan. They also sent us a wonderful Christmas card that we put on our bulletin board for all the volunteers to enjoy!

Southwire

Look at what you’ve given to our community….

$6,500 isn’t just a number. It is generosity. It is compassion. It is the ability to purchase $45,500 worth of food for families struggling with food insecurity in Denton County. It is the equivalent of 253,000 meals!

Southwire has generously donated an amazing amount of purchase power to the Denton Community Food Center out of their interest in our local community. This donation was unsolicited – completely unexpected. As the current pandemic continues, more and more families are stretched, having to make choices between food and other basic needs. Southwire has made a commitment to the community and to the Food Center.

Thank you for teaming with us to improve the lives of our neighbors.
