Believe it or not the Holiday season is upon us! Fall has snuck in and before you know it turkeys will be cooking and presents will be unwrapped…so it’s important that we start preparing to help those in our community that need help the most during this time of year.
Our Services department including the Community Pantry are keeping track of the things that we need and we would love your help. It’s important to get these Holiday items in but we always try to focus on the big picture here at GRACE.
“One thing I would like to encourage when talking to folks about the holiday list is this…I’d rather them pick a few items to concentrate on, but we ALWAYS want to push the items that we can use all year…in other words…not just pumpkin, cranberry sauce or chicken broth,” Stacy Pacholick, GRACE Chief Programs Officer. “We always need canned fruit, pancake mix, syrup, mashed potatoes…the things people want all year!!”
So please see how you can help with donations and don’t forget it’s never too late to start looking for unwrapped toys for Christmas Cottage!
If you have any questions regarding the holiday list please contact our Pantry Manager Marcus Miranda.
