Volunteer support allows us the opportunity to provide struggling families with clothing, shoes, backpacks and supplies for their children.
GRACE will be at the GCISD Fair to dispense material assistance and make connections with families who might need additional support throughout the year.
Volunteers are needed August 4 & 5 to load trucks with donations, unload and transport items to the fair. Those under 18 can assist with as runners, and older volunteers might interface with families on behalf of GRACE alongside GRACE Staff.
This is an excellent family opportunity to serve other families needing special care at this time of year.
Though not required, volunteers who have dollies are asked to bring them, and all volunteers must feel comfortable lifting 30-40 pounds.
