Acres of Angels was borne in 2009, a vision from God for Edna Griggs to help His people. “ We have Acres of land and we need Angels to do the work God has called me to do. We, the Acres of Angels are the Angels that are helping our community. After I was given this vision and the organization was formed, we have not stopped.
Acres of Angels started with a Mardi Gras party because Edna was a diabetic and wanted to help children beat the disease. Part of the proceeds from the party went to the Texas Children’s Hospital.
Later, they worked with the seniors living in six senior apartments. Playing bingo, sharing a meal, and educating them on what is needed for their communities to help them build self-esteem
Every year, three main events are held.
- The Acres of Angels Women’s Empowerment Summit
- The Acres of Angels Diabetes Walk
- The Acres of Angels Senior Gala
We never stop!
We would like to thank all of our sponsors, community leaders, elected officials and many others that make our events a success
