SANTA LUNCHEON

Date:  Saturday, December 9th     /     Time: 11:00am-1:00pm
 
Santa Luncheon is for local, marginalized families with children in our neighboring schools.  These families will be able to enjoy a visit with Santa, time to shop in the Elf’s Workshop, some holiday crafts and a live nativity. If you want volunteer your time to help with this event, please contact us by email at santaluncheon@gracehummelstown.org.
 
Our Angel Tree at Grace is filled with angel ornaments.  These angels list gifts for the children that are participating in the luncheon.  Please feel free to take an angel and return the wrapped gift to Grace by November 26th.

READY FOR SCHOOL PROGRAM 

Grace is currently sponsoring the Ready for School Program for the 17th year! 

The Ready for School Program helps to support marginalized families in our community who need school supplies in time for back to school.  The Grace Family has been asked to help 415 students in our surrounding school districts by having their basic school supplies ready and waiting for them the first day of the 2017-2018 school year.

You can help us reach our goal by supporting the project with prayer, supplies and monetary donations.  On average, a fully-stocked backpack cost is $40 and when you multiply $40 by the 415 backpacks needed this year, the amount can be overwhelming.  We are able to purchase backpacks and supplies in bulk at a savings, but still need to raise over $10,000 to meet the needs of the schools this year.  We will be accepting donations throughout the summer months to help us reach our goal.  Look for our “Backpack” collection box located in the Narthex at Grace.

We can all share our blessings with others and make a difference in our community.
