Hershey/Hummelstown CROP Hunger Walk

Grace will be participating in the CROP Hunger Walk again this year. This year’s walk is a virtual walk, and those interested in participating can sign up for the GUMC team here – https://www.crophungerwalk.org/hersheypa/Team/View/136134/GUMC-Hummelstown
CROP Hunger Walks help to provide food and water, as well as resources that empower people to meet their own needs. Participants can choose a specific time to either by yourself or with a few friends where social distancing is possible, and raise funds for this good cause, just as we’ve done in the past.

Hand-sewn Face Masks
Our Grace community has been hard at work making hand-sewn face masks.  To date, over 350 masks have been distributed to our neighborhood senior living communities, as well as our local fire & police stations.  If you are interested in joining this effort please see the attached instructions (CLICK HERE) or watch this instructional VIDEO. And feel free to drop off completed masks in the bin outside the Youth Room entrance at Grace, at the round-about.  This is being checked a few times a week for further community delivery!  
For any family that is in need of a face mask, whether you work for a company this is an essential business or you are doing mandatory errands to the grocery store, we want to ensure that you are able to do this safely.  Please contact Tammy Houck at tammyhouck@gracehummelstown.org and we can schedule a porch drop-off of masks for your family!  Stay safe and stay healthy!
