Grace Resource Center’s “Christmas in July” Event Needs a Helping Hand
Lancaster, CA – Grace Resource Center has been serving the Antelope Valley for 23 years. Their services include everything from emergency groceries, hot “souper” meals, computer training and much more. Two times a year, in July and December, Grace Resources gives toys to under privileged children. On Sunday, July 20, 2014, “Christmas in July” at The Hanger will once again come to the AV. The Jethawks vs Modesto Nuts game starts at 5pm. What an amazing event filled with baseball fun, face painting, free toy for every child 12 and under plus a visit from Santa.
There are so many ways you can help eliminate hunger and make the difference in the life of a child. Thousands of children in the Antelope Valley have been able for the first time to attend a baseball game. For many children this would not have been possible without the generous support of this community, individuals, like you. Our mission is to empower people to thrive with dignity, not just survive, through training, education, food, clothing, shelter, medical care and spiritual investment. Your generous support allows us to succeed with our mission.
Here are some simple and easy ways you can help.
- Donate a new unwrapped toy.
- The Jethawks game begins at 5:00 pm, tickets are $6.00 each and are available for purchase at Grace Resource Center. Plan an evening with family and friends, or get a group together to enjoy the evening.
