Back to School

GRACE is able to serve thousands of clients each year through the incredible support of volunteers and donors. Sometimes we are fortunate to employ the services of passionate individuals who want to offer their expertise and skills in one specific area. This summer, the Resale group was fortunate to have Erica Warner join the team and grow the eBay site. During her time here, sales increased and over 1,900 items were listed on the eBay site.

GRACE operates a successful resale program that funds a large portion of the annual budget. We receive so many donations from the community that the supply is greater than the client demand. Donations are received and sorted at our Donation Station, then distributed to GRACE programs.  Items not needed for programs go to two resale stores GRACEful Buys Grapevine and Euless or online at GRACEful-e.

“Having Erica this summer was beyond greatness.  Not only did she help GRACEful-e but she is such a pleasure and joy to be around. Her attitude is positive and contagious and one is never too old to learn from someone younger.  I welcome her back anytime. She truly added to my summer.  I will miss her much!” said Dorcas Holloway, Resale Internet Sales Manager / GRACEful-e.

As many prepare to head back to school, so too must our beloved Erica. She returns to New York to further her studies as a junior in the Gallatin School of Individual Study at New York University (NYU).  Her concentration is in U.S. History focusing on the black experience and music. We wish you all the success in the world and hope you come back to visit soon!
