New Bldg

The back hallway of the Community Clinic–the area that sustained heavy damage during the April fire–is beginning to take shape. Come for the “hardhat tour” on October 16 to see more.

Soon, GRACE will be moving to a brand new facility on East Walnut Street in Grapevine. Renovations are nearing completion on the new building, and the building—the Community Clinic and Pantry—that sustained serious fire damage.

From noon until 7 p.m. on Tuesday, October 16, Gala Chairs Lynda and Robert Warner will be on hand to greet guests and lead them through a “hard hat” tour of the facilities.

The building project has been underway since late March this year. The fire took place in mid-April causing a delay in the project, and additional work for the contracting company in charge of the build.

The campaign to raise the funds needed for the capital project, Rooted In GRACE, has been successful. Plans for the next phase, raising the construction and renovation costs for a new Donation Station, is underway.

Donation Station is often the first experience both donors and volunteers have at GRACE. The current Donation Station on Scribner Street has served admirably for many, many years. The space and location limitations are taking their toll on the experience many have.

Donation Station, and the three GRACE resale stores, GRACEful Buys in Grapevine and Euless, and Style & GRACE, generates more than 25-percent of the annual budget for GRACE programs and services.

Plans call for a large Donation Station with easy access by donors, as well as, increased sorting and storage space.

All are welcome to come for the hard hat tour and visit the first step into the future for GRACE. For more information contact Melissa Maraki or call 817-305-4672.
