There are only so many hours left in 2019! And GRACE Donation Station will be open for many of those hours so you can drop off your donations and receive a tax benefit.
Donation Station manager Kathy Mize believes today (Friday) and Saturday is really the ideal time! Donating your gently used clothing and household goods “now rather than next Monday and Tuesday will help beat the rush and the long lines we anticipate,” said Kathy.
Donation Station will be open until 6 p.m. this (Friday, December 27) afternoon; and open all day (Saturday, December 28) tomorrow 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. Donation Station is at 112 North Scribner Street in Grapevine—just turn at Old West Café and we’re right across the street!
Kathy asks that you please package the items you are donating in disposable containers like trash bags or cardboard boxes. This will help volunteers unload quickly and begin sorting.
“The end of the year is our busiest time,” said Kathy. GRACE embraces an “all hands on deck” attitude to unload cars and send donors on their way as fast as possible. “We are ready for your donated goods and thank you for all those your gifts will help,” she added.
GRACE will have plenty of volunteers and staff to help speed the process and get you on your way. Still, there is room for more volunteers. If you can spend a few hours with us next Monday (December 30) or Tuesday (December 31), please email GRACE Volunteer Manager Alicia Fike.
Also, please consider the tax benefits of making a year-end contribution to GRACE. All donations postmarked before January 1 will count toward your 2019 tax deductions. To be absolutely assured that your gift made it in time for the tax deadline, click here to make an online donation.
Thanks for a great 2019, and here’s wishing you and yours a safe and prosperous 2020!!
