This time of year we are especially grateful for donations of gently-used and new winter coats and jackets. We have seen an average of 420 family members getting new clothing to prepare for the cold weather each month, and that number is expected to increase.

While collections are appreciated, if everyone purchased one jacket or asked their friends to gather jackets or coats at their next social gathering, we would make sure that the attire continued to provide warmth to those struggling to make ends meet.

Where you can donate: Donations on behalf of local families are accepted at GRACE Main, where the Clothing Room housed at 610 Shady Brook Drive in Grapevine during operational hours Donation Station, 112 N. Scribner during office hours.
