Live. Love. Serve. 

May 6. 2017 – 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.                  @ First Baptist Church – Kemp



What is Live. Love. Serve?

Live. Love. Serve. was born out of the desire to meet one of the tangible needs of many families who call the 75143 zip code home. Based upon research in the Kemp area, approximately 1300 homes, 800 of which have children present, have legitimate concerns about providing adequate food and clothing for their family.
Through Live. Love. Serve. we seek to serve numerous families who live in the 75143 zip code with food and clothing based on household needs. Because of this, we are asking First Baptist Kemp to go through their closets and donate gently used clothing. In addition we are asking each person to  pick up items at the grocery store so that we can help families stock their pantries. 

What Kinds of clothing?

Gently worn Men’s, Women’s, Children’s and Baby clothing is welcomed. Please, no shoes, socks, or underwear. Items donated need to be washed and placed on a wire hanger if possible. Items can be dropped off at the church office anytime. However, for your convenience we have set specifics ingathering dates for items:
Upcoming dates: Sunday, April 16th

What kinds of Food?

Please donate only the following non-perishable food items as we will be preparing similar food boxes for each family we serve. (Please check expiration dates on all food.)

Canned Tuna, Canned Chicken, Spaghetti, Spaghetti Sauce(Large), Mac & Cheese, Box of Cheerios, Corn Bread Mix, Canned Corn, Rice(Small Bag), Peanut Butter, Jelly, Stew, Soup, Brownie Mix, Dry Pinto Beans (Small), Canned Green Beans

How can I Participate?

You can be a part of Live. Love. Serve. through your donations, and your time. We will need help sorting clothing and boxing food items. Please contact us for more information at 903.498.4971 or email
