Thank you for your interest in our Seasonal Programs!
The GRACE Holiday Food Program exists to serve those in need by providing warm meals for families to enjoy over the holidays. Each food basket includes a turkey, fruits, vegetables and kitchen staples for at least four meals.
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 at Christmas Cottage each holiday season.
Providing warmth and comfort this season not only allows families facing hardship to uphold cherished traditions; both programs are designed to continue a legacy of giving and instill new traditions for individuals, families and groups year after year.
This incredible effort is sustained by gifts donated by the community, hundreds of volunteer hours, and many, many batches of cookies!
This packet is a tool for individuals, families and groups to share the holiday spirit in a tangible way this season. On behalf of the families we serve, our deepest appreciation for investing your time, treasure and talent to extend grace to those in need this Christmas.
The 2018 Grace Christmas Cottage is located at 1250 William D Tate; Grapevine, TX. 76051 in the Grapevine Towne Center between Petco and Joann Fabrics.
Thank you for supporting GRACE families!
