Outreach

We are a ministry of action as stated in the name. The basic purpose is to help people at their point of need so that the relationship of Christ can be extended. These are some of the ways that we reach out to people.

Daily Food Pickup and Distribution in Houston Area

In the beginning there was one store that we picked up from and redistributed to people with a need. As word spread and opportunity presented itself we expanded. Now we are picking up daily from grocery stores and weekly from produce markets. This has allowed us to expand not only meeting the needs of individual families but helping those from halfway houses, women's safe houses, elderly apartment complexes, food antries, and orphanages.

Food Packaging for Distribution to the Underprivileged

Our food packaging program consists of a 13 1/2 ounce package of dehydrated food, when combined with water it will feed 6 children or 3 adults a nutritionally sound meal. We have been providing these meals for several years to orphanages and disaster areas.

In order to do the packaging of these meals we need your hel in two areas. First, we need your continued financial support. Without it we cannot do our daily grocery runs or do the packaging. And, we need your help in packing the meals and distributing them.

Packaging can be done in small groups by individuals, scout groups, church groups, school groups, or civic groups. Youth groups will require adult chaperones. If you would like to join us in this exciting venture, please call the office at 713-665-0577; or email us at amhouston@sbcglobal.net.

If you would like to make a monetary donation to go directly to the food packaging, please indicate so on your check by writing "food packaging" on the memo line. A box of 216 meals costs $65. You may also donate in a person's name as a memorial or in honor of them. Know someone having a birthday or anniversay or what about a Christmas gift? Give them a gift of feeding a warm and nutritious meal to 216 children or 108 adults. All donations in someone's name will be mentioned in our newsletter.

Other Donated Items

Because of a shift in direction, AMH is no longer accepting donations of vehicles, office furniture, equipment and supplies, clothing, furniture and household items.

We will accept books in excellent condition.

We encourage you to dispose of these items through the sale of them and donate the cash to further our food packaging program.
