You may have noticed (or panicked upon realizing) that it is now October, which means retailers are already slipping Christmas decor on the shelves between Halloween costumes. Whether or not the Texas climate has followed suit, the holidays are fast-approaching!

Each year, GRACE is able to provide thousands of children and parents with Christmas gifts for the holidays through our Christmas Cottage program. This dignified experience allows for moms and dads to select new, unwrapped gifts for their children that they can take home and prepare to put under the Christmas tree.

Of course, this program would not possible without the help and support of the community.

This year, our trusty elves have already put together a list of toys and gifts that we have the greatest need for! If you find yourself having stumbled upon a great sale or a familiar item from the 2023 Toy Wishlist, we would be more than appreciative of any and all donations. Until this year’s Cottage location is confirmed, these can be dropped off at GRACE’s Administrative office at 837 East Walnut St. Grapevine, TX.

For those who prefer their retail therapy from the comfort of their home, visit our Amazon Wishlist to find this year’s top items. Even better, take advantage of the Amazon Prime Day deals this Tuesday and Wednesday!

To celebrate all the wonderful volunteers, donations, and the time and energy spent bringing the Christmas Cottage to life, GRACE hosts an annual Christmas Cottage Open House! This year, this festive come and go event will take place on December 4th from 5:30 – 7:30. Stay tuned on GRACE socials for the updated Cottage location.

We are so grateful for the support of our community during the holidays especially. Thank you for helping bring the cheer of the holidays to thousands of families! For more information on how you can get involved, please reach out to our Seasonal Events Manager at
