‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’ Matthew 25:40 NLT
Giving back through life-changing experiences
Severe winter weather in Texas in 2021 caused many power outages, some of which were very long in duration. As a result, the entire state suffered severe economic impact; many businesses were closed; farmers struggled to water livestock; and individuals were faced with broken pipes, extensive home repairs, job losses and more. In the North Texas area Mission Harvest America (MHA) had provided blankets to a local agency and a church prior to the 2021 storm. Then in March and April MHA was able to participate in the Farmers to Families program, through City Serve, receiving five semi-truck loads of fresh food and milk. Each load contained 1260, 30-35 pound boxes of food, as well as 1260 gallons of milk. Churches, food banks, and other charitable groups in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area received and distributed the food, working together as they helped load one another’s vehicles at the distribution site.
Mission Harvest America (MHA) assisted the Marble City Food Pantry, located in the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma by donating two semi-truck loads of items including blankets, furniture, household items and toys. Marble City Food Pantry has a long history of providing much needed assistance to the people of Cherokee Nation and other tribal nations as well. MHA is proud to partner with the Marble City Food Pantry in helping to meet needs of others.
