The MANGER Shop
Mother's Assistance in Nutrition, Guidance, and Emergency Resources
The MANGER Shop is located in the lower level of Faith Community's Family Life Center. The Shop provides basics to babies and encouragement to caregivers. Micki Byrd had the original idea to start the MANGER Shop in 2002. With her guidance, the Shop has been blessing families for 14 years. Families with infants come to the MANGER Shop for diapers, formula, baby clothes, and other items that are required or helpful for raising a new life. Over the years these items have been donated in bulk or purchased out right to make them available.
This ministry is blessed by volunteers who love others and give of themselves. God has used The MANGER Shop to bless families in need as well as our wonderful volunteers. Most of our volunteers are from the Borden area and many have started attending Faith Community. The MANGER Shop has been a springboard to help our volunteers search how God can use them. We have seen change in each and every volunteer as they serve in the name of Jesus. We can always use additional volunteers for restocking, distribution, and connecting with the families as the come through.
The MANGER Shop is currently open for a couple hours three times a month. See the schedule below, or click here to see the calendar. We have at least 20 families visit us each time we are open. Some of the families that come for help bring toys, clothes, or other things they don't need any more to donate to someone else.
God is so good. He uses The MANGER Shop to bless so many people in so many different ways!
