    Volunteer Appreciation 2011

    Last week, we gathered to pay tribute to the wonderful people of this community who give so generously of their time to help make the GRACE Mission possible. The great folks at the Hilton DFW Lakes hosted the luncheon and Skipping Stone Studio came out to capture the moments.

    Last Days of the Feinstein Challenge

    For the 14th consecutive year, Alan Shawn Feinstein will divide $1 million among anti-hunger agencies nationwide using it as a spur to raise funds during March and April of this year.
    Feinstein's annual $1 million challenges to fight hunger have raised a record $1.35 Billion for over 2,000 agencies nationwide, and GRACE supporters have been a part of it.  Last year's campaign raised more than $231 million dollars. Donations towards this campaign make us all partners

    in the most successful campaign of all times to combat hunger in America!
    "My money started this campaign but it is YOU who will help decide how many needy people in your city or town will be fed this year.  All that will matter to us someday is what we did while we were here to help those who needed us...Thank you for sharing my heart, and the hope that - someday - no one will ever go hungry."  - Alan Shawn Feinstein
    This is the last week for donations of food items and monetary donations specified for the "Feinstein Challenge" to go towards the Feinstein Challenge. Please get your donations in by Friday, April 29th.
