A tour of GRACE sites and facilities is scheduled for 2:30 p.m., Monday, September 14. It is for everyone interested in the workings and locations of GRACE.
Ordinarily, this tour is scheduled in September to welcome and introduce GRACE to new members of the Board of Directors. This year, though, we wanted to take the opportunity to invite anyone that is interested in learning more about our organization.
GRACE operations cover numerous sites, programs, services, and opportunities for our clients so taking time to see our facilities really helps to put it all into perspective. Our tour covers not only our history but we also walk through the facilities themselves and introduce the people who operate them.
“Touring our facilities is maybe the best way to really see how GRACE operates,” said Mark Woolverton, GRACE Chief Development Officer. “It’s always exciting to show our new Board members the facilities but I’m really excited that this opportunity is now open to the public—it’s a great way to connect with the community.”
On the tour you will see our main offices on East Walnut Street, where our Client Services staff greet those who come to GRACE for help. On the opposite side of the facility, you’ll find the Community Clinic where GRACE patients receive top medical care, and our Food Pantry that is stocked with delicious and healthy food items–the same you’d find in any store.
The main offices also house the GRACE administration, finance, and development staff who work to help guide and grow our mission.
Attendees will also tour and shop our resale store, GRACEful Buys. And, finally, no tour would be complete without a stop by Donation Station where the community comes to donate their items so we can make sure they find new homes.
It’s not uncommon for people who have been a part of GRACE for years to not know about all of our programs and services–use this opportunity to see all of GRACE and learn more about how you can help those in need.
