This week volunteers gathered around the GRACE Food Pantry back lot so hundreds of families could gather around their table over a warm holiday meal.
During holiday distribution, families (and some volunteers who drove on behalf of clients who were unable to drive or lacked transportation) are able to drive through the back lot at the GRACE Food Pantry and be greeted by friendly volunteers, who load their vehicles with the holiday food basket just in time for the Thursday feast.
Last year 600 turkey dinners and sides were given to families struggling to make ends meet this Thanksgiving.
This week and every week at GRACE, the kindness of the volunteers and gratefulness of the clients seem to echo the sentiment we most cherish this time of year: “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. His love endures forever.”
A special thanks to the following volunteer groups that made Thanksgiving distribution possible:
