It’s the most wonderful time of the year—Christmas Cottage season has begun, and we are proud to announce the 2017 location, 3100 Timberline in Grapevine, near Timberline Elementary School. The program officially opens to clients on December 7, and runs through the 22, which requires hundreds of volunteer hours to prepare for the season.
For the Christmas Cottage to happen, GRACE counts on the community to help us provide for the anticipated 150 daily family members who need a little help this season. Parents essentially ‘shop’ among the new, unwrapped toys, so they can choose what would excite their children most, and wrap them under the tree.
The vision is to allow children to share the same excitement on Christmas morning as any child regardless of privilege, and for parents to feel at ease knowing that despite the hardships they are facing, treasured holiday traditions can stay intact for their family.
Gifts for teens and tweens are needed. Gift cards of $5 or $10 to Subway, Sonic and other similar restaurants are great! Wrapping paper, small appliances for family gifts and batteries are also an ongoing need.
