Legal Aid of NW Texas holds monthly Plano clinics at Seven Loaves Community. Attorneys and legal aids, this is your chance to use your gifts to help those in need. Visit the Legal Aid of NW Texas website for more information http://www.lanwt.org/
Seven Loaves Food Pantry clients have access to full-sized hygeine products once a month through the Plus One program. Plus One is a program that encourages donors to think of someone in need when they are buying hygeine items for themselves. This is a completely volunteer-run effort and we are thankful for those who take this project on each year and make it happen for our clients.
During the holidays, Seven Loaves Community provides special and extra holiday food. Details are distributed to registered food pantry clients during regular service hours.
