For families in need this holiday season, the GRACE Christmas Cottage is a shining star. The program provides new, unwrapped gifts to families facing financial hardship due to limited income or recent emergency.
All are invited to attend the Christmas Cottage Open House on November 30 at 815 S. Main Street in Grapevine. The event kicks off at 4 p.m. with cookies and punch for kids, and the evening continues at 5:30 p.m. with wine, light bites and special guests.
At the Christmas Cottage, each qualified family is given a hypothetical “budget” that allows the parents to “purchase” donated toys, home goods and appliances in a private, store-like setting. This unique approach allows families to budget their resources and select unique presents while preserving the family’s dignity. Over 2,700 individuals and families are served each holiday season.
New, unwrapped gifts will be accepted all evening. Gifts can be dropped off at Donation Station, 112 N. Scribner Street or GRACE Main, 610 Shady Brook Drive, both in Grapevine. The Christmas Cottage Program will be open from December 8-22.
