GRACE will be providing clothing and school supplies to children in need at the GCISD Back to School Fair and we could use your help! There are two ways to help out: DONATE and VOLUNTEER!
GRACE is looking for volunteers to assist us during the GCISD Back to School Fair on Friday, August 9th and Saturday the 10th.
Over 1,300 students are registered to attend. Our volunteers will help guide families through the fair to get the supplies and services they need. Volunteers are also needed to load and unload school supplies in the truck.
This service day does have age restrictions and might require lifting up to 40 pounds. Get complete details and sign up for a shift here.
Please note the new location this year due to construction at Grapevine High School: Cross Timbers Middle School, 2301 Pool Rd., Grapevine, TX 76051. CTMS and GHS are actually connected through a driveway and this new venue is behind Grapevine High.
Whether or not you are able to volunteer, there are still ways you can help with our Back-To-School needs.
Items needed for donations are new, unused underwear, socks and shoes for children, especially athletic shoes.
The sizes of underwear most needed are Boy’s sizes 4, 6/8, 10/12, and 14/16.
If you prefer to help by volunteering, this is a double hours opportunity! Please check that double hours are accepted by your organization or club.
Please be sure to note the following before signing-up:
- Shifts during the fair are only for those who are over 18 and out of high school. This is for the privacy of our clients/children who will be attending the fair.
- All shifts do involve walking, standing and lifting various items.
- Bilingual individuals will be needed during the fair, but it is not a requirement.
If you have any questions, please contact Client Services Manager, Marcela Melendez via email or call (817) 305 4632.
