Do you have clothing and other items that you would normally take to Goodwill? If so, you could bring it to the church and put in the NEED container in the hallway across from the mailboxes. If you have furniture that you want to donate you can take it to Twice Blessed in Hurst..

Here is another way to help NEED. Have you shopped at “Twice Blessed?” N.E.E.D. operates the Twice Blessed retail store at 424 Bedford Euless Road in Hurst. This retail outlet features a wide selection of pre-owned and pampered merchandise. Proceeds help fund NEED operations.

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.
