GRACE is a proud
partner agency of the
United Way of
With the generous support of Lucas Funeral Home and many others in the community, a memorial service is being planned for Leslie Scribner, the long-time Grapevine resident who was accidentally killed Monday morning. Currently, GRACE is accepting donation to help cover the cost of a casket and other funeral costs. GRACE is happy to accept cash donations either through the "Donate Now" button above or in person at our office at 610 Shady Brook in Grapevine.
Many who have learned of Mr. Scribner's death have contacted GRACE to find out how they can contribute to efforts to help GRACE and memorialize his name. For those who feel compelled to give, GRACE is also accepting donations of new unwrapped toys that will help us get a head start on the 2010 Christmas Cottage. Due to a decline in the number of toys donated for the 2009 Christmas Cottage, we do not have the usual stockpile of toys that help us get through the first few days of the cottage when donations are slower.
As details of the memorial service become available, we will post them on our website (www.gracegrapevine.org). For more information about Mr. Scribner's story, please follow these links:

GRACE Client Receives Post-Christmas Miracle
Before the Christmas holiday, we told you about a GRACE client who was in need of a truck so that he could accept a new job. Earlier this week, GRACE received word from an anonymous donor that a truck was being provided. Yesterday, our client received his new (to him) truck and is looking forward to his new job with First Baptist Church of Grapevine.
Thank you to the members of this community who see or hear of a need and take often extraordinary steps to fill them. It is an honor for all of us here at GRACE to be stewards of the blessings that God provides through all of you!
Our Holiday Needs Have Been Met Kenn Mingus, GRACE Food Pantry
We received an abundance of stuffing, cranberry, pancake mix, corn and everything else that we asked for. We are truly grateful for the generosity of the community. However, with the holidays now over, we need to turn our attention to some of those things we haven't focused on for a while.
The overall pantry needs are identified in the box to the left; however, the often neglected "hygiene" items are what I'd like to focus on this week. Specifically, we need laundry soap in small boxes (30 load variety), shampoo (16 to 24 oz),deodorant (men and women) and toilet paper.
Of course, we are always low on freezer items such as bologna, hotdogs, hamburger meat, TV dinners, pot pies, ham and others, but let's not forget produce items like apples, oranges, cabbage, carrots, lettuce, tomatoes, potatoes and onions.
Whew! That's a pretty extensive list! No rest for the wary...we still need your help! Thank you all in advance, we know you'll come through for us!
GRACE Needs Volunteers
This time of year is generally our toughest time to find volunteers. Perhaps it is because so many are taking it easy after the buzz of the holidays or simply because folks aren't aware that the needs that are so obvious during the holidays still exist. Whatever the case, GRACE is looking folks with a servant's heart and a little available time to help all around the agency. For more information, please come to one of our New Volunteer Orientations coming up in a few weeks.
New Volunteer Orientation:
Monday, February 1 at 6:00pm Tuesday, February 2 at 10:00am
Wednesday, February 3 from 4:00-5:00pm Wednesday, February 17 from 4:00-5:00pm
Orientations are held in the boardroom at the GRACE main offices at 610 Shady Brook Drive. Please park in the city lot to the east of our building and enter the boardroom through the double glass doors at the rear of our building. Signs will be posted to help direct you.
