Celebrate the holidays with GRACE and help us collect toys for families in need this season.
The community is encouraged to attend GRACE’s annual Christmas Cottage Open House, a special evening when families and businesses have the opportunity to donate new, unwrapped toys to make the holiday season special for children in need.
Thanks to the generosity of the City of Grapevine and sponsor Park Place Lexus in Grapevine, GRACE is able to utilize the same Christmas Cottage site for its third consecutive year at 815 S Main Street off Dallas in Grapevine.
The Open House will be held on Wednesday, November 30. Guests are encouraged to bring new, unwrapped gifts to children and families in need. This is an ideal holiday event for your family, church, civic group or business to attend.
Refreshments and Christmas cheer will be provided! Holiday goodies will be served for the children at 4:00 p.m., with wine and hors d’oeuvres at 5:30 p.m.

About Christmas Cottage
For those who haven’t experienced the magic of Christmas Cottage in the community, Christmas Cottage is a GRACE program that provides new, unwrapped gifts to families facing financial hardship due to limited income or recent emergency. Each qualified family is given a hypothetical “budget” that allows the parents to “purchase” donated toys, home goods and appliances in a private, store-like setting. This unique approach allows families to budget their resources and select unique presents while preserving the family’s dignity. Over 2,700 individuals and families are served each holiday season.
Providing warmth and comfort this season not only allows families facing hardship to uphold cherished traditions; Christmas Cottage is designed to continue a legacy of giving and instill new traditions for your family, community group or business.
