Kaufman Texas, - It wasn’t all that unusual on December 6th to see the many guests streaming into the Grace Fellowship activity room, for the yearly Christmas party hosted by Sheriff David A. Byrnes, but it was unique to see most guests bringing a food donation for the Kaufman Christian Help Center.
“There are so many people in our own community that are going hungry, and we really wanted to do something to help”, stated Sheriff David Byrnes. Guests were asked to bring a food item to donate to the Kaufman Christian Help Center, and indeed they did! “It is nice to see how generous people are”, stated Sheriff Byrnes.
The Kaufman Christian Help Center located at 400 Highway 34 in Kaufman, assists families and individuals on restricted budgets to meet their daily nutritional needs. Besides the food pantry they provide victims services, information and referral services, and a new Job Core program for women to learn life skills as well as basic job training skills. The Help Center serves the cities of Kaufman, Kemp, Crandall, and Scurry Rosser residents.
The Kaufman Christian Help Center is a non profit organization that was started in 2005, and its Director Melinda Polk is always looking for volunteers and donations. Although the Help Center is sponsored by eighteen local churches, donations are still needed from the community. If you would like to donate money or food go to www.kaufmanhelp.org. to learn more.
