Last week GRACE held its annual Thanksgiving Food Distribution! Clients were given dinner packages containing all of the holiday staples and were met with the compassion of our wonderful volunteers. 

This year, GRACE served around 400 families over the course of three days! In total, our Holiday Food Distribution serves around 800 families every year. But we can’t do it without the help of our volunteers— Thanksgiving may have passed, but we will always be grateful for our community! 

We would like to give a special thanks to this year’s volunteer groups: John Slocum & Friends, Good Shepherd Men’s Club, BluSky Restoration, Baylor Scott & White, First Baptist Church Grapevine, Tonia Casper Friends & Family, Great Wolf Lodge, 121 Community Church, Grapevine Masonic Lodge, and St. Lawrence Church. Thank you for all of your hard work! 

With Thanksgiving in the rear-view, GRACE is gearing up for its December Food Distribution— and we need your help! 

As of right now, we have close to 200 holiday food packages prepped and ready to go. We anticipate receiving another 400 clients for our December Food Distribution. If you are interested and able, we would greatly appreciate your help in putting together the remaining 200 packages.
