Hometown Heroes: Frisco Family Services 

The Frisco RoughRiders and fans welcomed Baylor Medical Center at Frisco Hometown Heroes honoree, Frisco Family Services, for an onfield presentation on Saturday, August 17. Baylor Frisco has supported the work of Frisco Family Services since the hospital opened its doors in 2002.

The mission of Frisco Family Services is to help citizens of Frisco and surrounding  communities who are facing hunger, homelessness and other urgent needs improve their quality of life and achieve self-sufficiency. Frisco Family Services meets basic human needs by serving more than 3,200 individuals a year with rent/mortgage assistance, help with utility payments, gasoline vouchers and more.

Frisco Family Services has the only food pantry in Frisco and distributes more than 395,000 pounds of food a year. You can help keep the FFS food pantry stocked this summer by organizing a "Feed Frisco" food drive or by adopting a shelf and committing to keeping a certain item, i.e. diapers or flour, always stocked. See FriscoFamilyServices.org for more details.

Baylor Frisco is the title sponsor of Frisco Family Services' annual Mayor's Golf Classic, participates in Frisco Family Services yearly gala and helps with  Thanksgiving distribution and the holiday program. Baylor Frisco’s executive chef, Carl Hall, provides delicious home-cooked meals to those in need the second Monday of each month at 5 p.m. in front of the Frisco Family Services offices. From collecting food to serving on the board of directors to volunteering wherever needed, Baylor Frisco proudly supports Frisco Family Services and its mission.

Frisco Family Services provides more than $200,000 a year in emergency financial assistance for families in need. By donating and shopping at Frisco Resale in Historic Downtown Frisco, you are helping your neighbors in need.  Funds generated from Frisco Resale help fund the programs and services of Frisco Family Services.

During Saturday's starting lineup, children from Frisco Family Service's Little Hands program joined the 'Riders on the field. Little Hands is a volunteer program at Frisco Family Services offering family volunteer activities for children age 10 and younger. If you have little ones, we encourage you to participate. Some of the programs Little Hands help with include lemonade stands supporting Frisco Family Services Back to School program and help in the Community Garden. This is a great opportunity to make a difference in our community and teach volunteerism and social responsibility. See FriscoFamilyServices.org for more details or to sign up today.
