The History of the Asbury Relief Ministry
ARM has been in operation, at the church building, since the 1980’s. Born out of the pastor’s office and the pastor’s emergency fund into a weekly operation with an average of 30 volunteers.
Volunteers are needed to assist clients on Monday mornings and evenings. Volunteers are also needed Friday mornings to stock the pantry from the weekly pickup from the Tarrant County Food Bank. These volunteers are generally needed about 2 hours on Friday mornings, starting about 10am. If you would like to volunteer for any of these times, you should contact the ARM volunteer coordinator at 940.382.7615.
Monetary donations are greatly appreciated and used for gas to and from the food bank in Ft. Worth each Friday. It is also used to buy our food from the food bank for about 20 cents a pound. When the food bank does not have items we deem necessary, we will order food from grocery stores at regular prices. We also buy toiletry and hygiene items. All food items donated are accepted: canned goods, produce, meats ,dairy, pantry staples, and toiletry/hygiene items. We do not hand out clothing or appliances and do not accept these types of donations.
