Seasonal Needs

Seasonal expenses such as holidays, back-to-school, extreme weather changes and tax time can overextend a family’s financial resources. GraceWorks offers:

The Manger Christmas Gifts

The Manger is our annual Christmas program for eligible neighbors. With the generosity of our local community donating new items ($30 or less for infants to seniors), and with the help from teams of volunteers, a “store-like” environment is created just for these families to choose their own gifts. They are encouraged to make cash donations back into the program.

Backpacks & Supplies

Having the needed, and required, school supplies can make the difference between success and failure in school. GraceWorks, along with United Way, area churches, businesses and agencies work together to distribute backpacks and school supplies to county students each year.

Holiday Food Boxes

An important part of holidays is sharing a meal together with loved ones. At Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas, donors are matched with families to provide Holiday Food Boxes. Items such as ham, turkey, potatoes, milk and eggs, bread and dessert are included.

Air Conditioners & Heaters

Extreme heat and cold are harmful to those who have medical issues, the elderly and the young. With a doctor’s recommendation, air conditioners and heaters are provided when needed.

Tax Preparation

In our commitment to help families become more financially stable and increase their assets, GraceWorks is a site for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, managed by United Way of Williamson County. The program allows hard-working individuals to have a little extra to spend on groceries, pay a bill, or build their savings.
