Since its inception, the food ministry of Grace has served over three-quarters of a million pounds - 375 tons of food to over 46,000 people. This is done through our weekly Mobile Food Pantry over 200 families a week depend on, as well as our Blessing Box/Fridge frequented by 420-875 people per week - so nearly 2,000 people are impacted by our food ministry every week. We have expenses associated with this outreach and this fundraiser will be an investment in continuing to impact our neighbors.
Music has always been a way Grace touches the hearts and souls of our community. In particular, our pipe organ has always been a source of great joy to those who visit us throughout the year, and especially during the Christmas Season. Our pipe organ has suffered damage rendering it inoperable. Reaching or even exceeding our sales goal will help us put a major dent in covering the expense of the repairs.
I hope you will take a few minutes in the days ahead to support the outreach at Grace by getting behind this easy fundraiser - who doesn't love tamales, and they freeze so well!
