HOW CAN YOU HELP?

  • Food/grocery donations (place in bins on NW side of Grace Church, 5504 E. 146th St.)
  • Pray for our Grace Care Center families
  • Drivers for home deliveries (email: marcusc@gracechurch.us)
  • Phone calls to Grace Care Center families (email: marcusc@gracechurch.us)
  • Financial donations
    • Adjusted food budget due to both increased need and decreased food donations (normally 97% of our food we give away in the choice food pantry is donated – that has drastically decreased in the crisis)
    • Adjusted micro-financing budget due to increased financial hardship of Grace Care Center families
    • Loss of anticipated Thrift Store income to offset the Grace Care Center operating budget due to closure of the store
