We maintain a Blessing Room with clothing, shoes, games, puzzles, and toiletry items. All of these items are free to the seafarers, truck drivers, and port workers who need them. New and gently used men's clothing in small, medium and large sizes are needed. Used puzzles, games, and shoes are also welcomed. Deliver the clothing to the Center at 1103 Cherry Street, Freeport, Texas 77541 during our business hours.
Snack items are helpful in meeting the needs of truck drivers. We do not have a truck stop in the area, so truck drivers are very limited in what food they have access to. Any prepackaged, non-perishable snacks are acceptable.
Used magazines and books are given to seafarers and truck drivers. They are especially interested in the following:
Plastic Canvas Cross Bookmarks
A favorite item by most visitors to Texas Port Ministry are these crosses. You can make them in any color and in any size, thought the most often donated size is 2 1/2" X 4".
