Each holiday season, Grace Pointe is alive with music, food and fun. And in addition to enjoying fabulous holiday dinners, visits from Santa, and almost daily live entertainment, Grace Pointe staff, residents and their families find time to give back.
In what has become a much anticipated holiday event, we kicked off the season with our Holiday Gift Show and Chili Lunch. We had a record number of vendors this year, selling scarves, leggings, quilts, jewelry makeup, baked goods and more! Proceeds from the Chili and Cornbread lunch funded a coat drive for the District Six Clothing Bank, supplying many coats for kids in Greeley schools.
Our 6th annual toy/food drive supported the Guadalupe Homeless Shelter and the Weld Food Bank. Barrels overflowed with nonperishable food donations, and our Assisted Living Christmas tree was overloaded with unwrapped toys. Inventoried later at the Shelter, Director Enita Hout happily reported that we had donated nearly $900 worth of toys for children at the shelter this Christmas, and a surplus of toys for the upcoming year.
The spirit of giving is alive and well at our community, and we thank each and every one of you for your participation in these wonderful holiday events.
