Grand Central Station is holding a fundraiser on August 23, 2018 from 6pm-9pm at the Hilton Event Center to raise money and awareness for the overlooked and underserved citizens of our community.
The Grace and Gratitude Fundraiser Event will feature Celebrity Speaker Leigh Anne Tuohy.
Located at 110 S. Throckmorton in Sherman, Grand Central Station (GCS) is a non-profit corporation with tax exempt status under section 501 (c) (3). GCS operate as a local outreach sponsored by a group of Grayson County churches and volunteers that share a commitment to help reduce the effects of resource limitations. GCS helps the underserved population by serving nutritious meals to alleviate hunger, assist with other needs such as showers, laundry facilities, and referrals to other groups and individuals for medical, dental, and other social services.
GCS survives on donations of food and money from local donors, foundations, and businesses. Most of our food is donated or purchased through North Texas Food Bank in Dallas for very economical prices. We supplement some needs with cash and grant donations.
The primary service of the Dining Car is to is to provide hot, nutritious lunch meals for anyone in need, with a family-friendly environment and emphasis on a much-needed social experience and for those who have no other way to receive necessary nutrition. Our long-range goals are to provide multiple services for the under-served in our area. We work with other community organizations and agencies to enhance current aid and not duplicate services.
The organization serves the homeless and indigent population of Sherman, Denison, and greater Texoma. They serve all ages without question. Open Monday-Friday from 9 AM to 1 PM. Coffee, juice, and other breakfast foods are served to visitors early each day. A hot lunch is served Monday – Friday. On Saturdays GCS is open for volunteers from 8:30 -10 AM who prepare substantial “To-Go” brown bag lunches for pick up that day by our visitors in need.
