Grace has started a new initiative with community outreach drives.
Current drive - Spring 2018 - INSIDE-OUT MinistriesOur Grace spring drive is a group effort with Congregation Care and the Youth Group. We will be collecting a range of basic needs for Inside-Out Ministries located here in Madison to serve the City of Madison. Inside-Out is an All-Volunteer service organization. There current needs are:
- Clothes: new and gently used coats, mittens, hats, and scarves
- Food Items: canned fruit, spaghetti sauce, canned/packets of meat, pancake syrup, cereal, jelly, bottles of juice
- Clean Items: clothes detergent, paper towels, toilet paper, multipurpose cleaners (ie. 409, Lysol)
- Hygiene Products: deodorant and shampoo
Fall 2017 - Baby Wipes and small paper platesThe Handbell Choir of Grace has suggested our latest community outreach drive. We will be collecting baby wipes and small paper plates to support our local United Cerebral Palsy of Huntsville and Tennessee Valley. UCP has a donation list on their website. Please drop off donations at Grace anytime this fall.
Summer 2017 - PET SUPPLIES
The Youth of Grace have chosen to help MARF (Madison Animal Rescue Foundation) for the church’s second quarter drive. MARF needs dog and cat food, dog and cat toys, and new or gently used crates and carriers for all size pets. Please bring your donations to the church by July 1. For more details (such as pet food brands, etc.) see MARF’s wish list.
Spring 2017 - ADULT DIAPERS
Grace is having another drive to help CASA (Care Assurance System for the Aging and Homebound of Madison County). CASA needs all sizes of adult diapers (or absorbent underwear) for the aging they serve. Please consider donating a package of diapers. Drop off at the church.
Fall 2016 – PLASTIC FOOD CONTAINERS
The first donation opportunity helps fulfill a CASA need. Grace is collecting plastic food containers (clean used or new). Containers will be used by CASA to distribute fruits and vegetables to the elderly this fall. Please bring plastic container to Grace by September 11, and place in the blue tub outside the front door.
