Each year giving supporters like you join us for the exciting online event North Texas Giving Day. All next Thursday, September 22, GRACE and thousands of other charities in this region will be asking for your support.
As you know, GRACE embraces the philosophy that encouraging self-sufficiency will, in turn, strengthen families and help preserve neighborhoods and communities. It is only through your generosity that we are able to offer compassion and assistance to those who so desperately need it.
For many years now, GRACE has been witness to this cycle of families building and succeeding, only to be undercut by an illness, loss of a job, decreased work hours, car repair, accident, or some other incident that amounts to a devastating financial crisis for these families.
As we launch our 36th year of service, we look back on our accomplishments, but we are also keenly aware of the work that lies before us. Last year we served more than 12,000 individuals. The pandemic drove thousands to seek help from GRACE for food, shelter, clothing, medical care—basic necessities of life. Instead of tapering off as the world transitioned back into normalcy, client numbers have only grown.
As the population of our area continues to grow and the potential for financial crises to strike those in the lower socio-economic echelon of that growth continues to threaten, funding from North Texas Giving Day helps ensure GRACE services and programs continue apace with the needs in the community.
Every $100, $500, or $1000 gift has the ability to make a life-changing transformation for a family in need. It’s your faithful partnership that allows us to extend GRACE to thousands in our community each year.
