Thank you GRACE Volunteers for your amazing support in 2022!
This week, after serving over 875 households, it was time to close the chapter to the 2022 GRACE Christmas Cottage and prepare for the year 2023. However, before we could do that, we needed to store all of our donations, tables, chairs, decorations, and other Christmas Cottage items back into our Storage at Frost Bank.
Along with our Christmas Cottage Elves, NCL-Southlake, LDS, YMSL, SASO Inc., and Southlake Carroll Wrestling team (who brought in an astonishing 50-plus volunteers), all participated in GRACE’s Christmas Cottage move-out day.
“I have done many projects with teenagers over the years in Southlake as well as with my work at GRACE”, said longtime GRACE volunteer, Lynda Warner. “However, I have never dealt with such an amazing group of young adults. They were always on task, and took initiative, which made this project go very smoothly.”
Volunteers play such a pivotal role in our GRACE community. From assisting the sorting at GRACE’s Donation Station to helping with the load and unload on GRACE’s Christmas Cottage move-out day and everything in between, you will always find our wonderful volunteers helping to serve the community.
GRACE would like to take this time to say thank you to all volunteer groups and individuals who made 2022 successful and fulfilling. Your energy and passion for serving the community are something that everyone can use in order to be the light in the world.
For those looking to start the New Year off with volunteering, GRACE’s Donation Station still needs your help. Due to an influx of donations that we receive on a daily bases, (which we are so grateful for), it has become challenging for our staff to sort donations while also making sure that the donations get to our clients and to our stores in a timely manner.
As a volunteer at D.S., you will help to unload donations from vehicles, sort out donations to fit clients’ needs, test electronic equipment to make sure that everything works and will be in good use for our clients, and so much more.
