  • turkeys
  • cranberry sauce
  • canned pumpkin pie mix
  • canned yams
  • turkey stuffing
  • turkey gravy
  • flour and sugar
  • chicken broth
  • green and black olives

Have you shopped at “Twice Blessed?” If not, you need to! N.E.E.D. operates the Twice Blessed thrift store at 424 Bedford Euless Road in Hurst. This thrift store features a wide selection of pre-owned and pampered merchandise. Proceeds help fund NEED operations.

As the year comes to a close you may be thinking of last minute ways to give back or to reduce your 2018 income taxes. NEED (North East Emergency Distribution) can help. You can mail your gift to 424 W. Bedford Euless Rd. Hurst TX 76053 - be sure it is postmarked by December 31st if you would like to deduct it from your 2018 taxes.

Do you have or know of someone that has extra time in order to volunteer at NEED? We are in need of individuals to volunteer at the NEED West location. We need help on the 1st, 3rd and 4th Friday’s of each month from 9:45 am to 2:45 pm. Work would include stocking shelves and filling client orders for food.
