How to Help

Assistance During COVID 19

GRACE needs you in order to be #SummitStrong!  This week and last GRACE served more than 500 families.  Each family who comes to GRACE receives a variety of food and household supplies. In this time of scarcity, we need your help in terms of donations and support. 

We are especially looking for cleaning supplies such as disinfectant spray, Clorox wipes, and hand sanitizer. Many people are in dire need of personal care items such as shampoo, soap, lotion, toothpaste, baby wipes, and size three through six diapers. For food we need dried beans in one pound bags, rice in one pound bags, pasta, canned tuna, salmon, chicken, and beef. We also accept fresh produce donations Sunday-Tuesday. Any of these items may be dropped off at the Summit Community Center Monday throguh Friday from 8:45 AM until 4:15 PM.

In addition, please contact us to share any employment opportunities with our GRACE community.
