ACTS HUNGER PREVENTION CENTER UPDATE:
Since May, Grace has donated 2,492 pounds of food through the generous outpouring of donations of Grace Members. If you would like to make a donation to Grace to purchase food for ACTS, please make your check payable to Grace with the notation in the memo area for “Social Ministry Community”. Please continue to bring in plastic grocery bags and handle bags for the ACTS Food Pantry as these items are needed to carry food items home. Place these items in the blue bins in the hallway. Contact Debbie Willemann if you have any questions.
GRACE GOOD SAMARITAN PROGRAM:
This program was set up at Grace to give a quick response when one of our members comes across a person in need. Whether it’s a warm jacket or new sneakers, we have a system for quickly meeting those needs. Request forms, which are kept in the church office, are presented to either Debbie Willemann or Sherry Morse. If appropriate, we then call several Grace Members who have signed up with the Good Samaritan Program to help fill that need. We have a list of more than 16 members, so when a need arises we rotate names to donate monies to purchase what is needed. If you would like to be on the list of people for the Good Samaritan Program, please contact Debbie or Sherry.
