Santa’s elves might as well take a vacation this Christmas, thanks to the hardworking students, faculty and families of Dove Elementary, Old Union Elementary and Grapevine Colleyville ISD.

The collective teams filled Christmas stockings to the brim to benefit families in need, along with toys and wrapping paper (an oft-overlooked but continual need at the Christmas Cottage!)

As a community, you have gathered around shopping carts, toy drive bins, and heaps of socks, coats, canned goods and dolls and books for children. You have sorted goods at the Food Pantry and gave hearty meals to families in need. You have collected items from your home to donate to Donation Station. From every age and class and industry, you have shown a fierce dedication to serve families that have little this holiday season.

We couldn’t be more honored that you would give your time and resources to ensure families have a Merry Christmas. There is still more yet to be done, and if you haven’t teamed up with GRACE or are looking for new ways to serve here are some options:

Make a year-end gift.

Funding is vital in continuing programs this season and throughout the year. Since we receive no government funding, GRACE wholly relies on God through the generosity of this community to give provisions to continue the mission.
