Hundreds of you gathered around shopping carts, toy drive bins, and heaps of socks, coats, canned goods and dolls and books for children this holiday season.
You sorted goods at the Food Pantry and gave hearty meals to families in need. You collected items from your home to donate to Donation Station. From every age and class and industry, you were determined to give much to those who had little this Christmas.
The numbers are in, and we are so grateful for the ways your support was able to encourage, equip and nourish families .Your generous Christmas gifts provided new, unwrapped toys under the trees of 639 households—that’s 1,350 children and 2,379 family members!
Over 1,000 parents were able to wrap their carefully-selected gifts and watch their children’s faces light up on Christmas morning, all because you were passionate about sharing God’s love with your neighbors.
Not only did so many families enjoy the sounds of Tonka trucks, nerf guns and singing Elsa’s on Christmas Day, your support also provided the delicious smells of a warm holiday meal from the GRACE Food Pantry.
Since Thanksgiving, you packaged and loaded 771 meals to families facing hardship this season. The community also provided commodities, groceries and Christmas gifts to over 100 local displaced seniors, thanks to the Grapevine Chamber Women’s Division.
To the families, businesses, church groups and civic leaders, this remarkable community once again provided for families during a time when hope was needed most.
