March 10th marks an anniversary many us would like to forget! COVID lockdowns and Safer at Home measures went into place. So many in our community were impacted. Jobs lost, kids home from school and seniors staying safe at home. The pandemic has adversely affected all of us in one way or another. What has been very heartening during a disheartening time is how the community has come together to meet the needs of those struggling. Volunteers delivering groceries, packing and sorting groceries and serving hot meals. Donors digging deep and demonstrating  generosity like we’ve never seen before. We are averaging 13,200 bags of groceries going to those in need every month! Those bags feed 2-4 people, that’s at least 26,000 people per month being fed in the midst of this pandemic! Never has Grace Resources distributed more food to those in need! Thank you all who have made this possible! Thank you to all who have been a part of bringing #hope2021!

We are approaching that light at the end of the tunnel! Many are getting vaccinated, including some on our staff, but it is important to not let our guard down yet!  We want to keep you, our clients and staff safe so please wear a mask and maintain physical distancing while at our facility.
