“We are so grateful to the men of St. Andrew for hosting this annual fundraiser to benefit our neighbors in The Storehouse,” said Candace Winslow, General Manager of The Storehouse of Collin County. “The pandemic and inflation have dramatically increased food insecurity within our community, and we now serve over 3,000 families each month – a number that has tripled since March 2020 before the Covid pandemic. Every donation we receive enables us to serve our neighbors holistically, not only meeting their food and clothing needs, but also serving as a “channel of care” to help them with other aspects of their lives.
St. Andrew’s United Methodist Church began in 1986 in the spirit of its namesake, a follower of Jesus. The life of the Apostle Andrew embodies the mission of the Church, which is to invite Christians and non-believers to become passionate servants of Christ.

Worship includes four services each weekend on a 21.2-acre campus at the corner of Plano Parkway and Mira Vista in Plano, Texas, where more than 2,000 people gather each weekend.
