~ On our 2NDSAT we begin the morning by unpacking and laying out the assembly line of the gathered food supplies for Fuel Bags. Once this is in place, we begin filling the bags and place them in boxes for transport, and round out the morning by loading all this into the GraceWorks truck. Join us to share the work of this far-reaching ministry, they offer multiple ways for individual involvement. In agreement with GraceWorks, we chose January and May to highlight this mission as they are often lowest on donations and supplies during these months.
Over 5000 students in Williamson County qualify for the free/reduced meal programs through the school systems. GraceWorks Fuel Bag Program provides approximately 750 bags of nutritional food weekly in Williamson County. Last year, 20,812 fuel bags were distributed to students in need to take home for the weekend.
GraceWorks Volunteers are needed each week! If you like sharing your time and talents helping others, become a part of the GraceWorks team. There are opportunities at GraceWorks in Franklin as well as GraceWorks West in Fairview.
