Even in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, GRAC continues to support those less fortunate in our community! This Is Our Moment – All In. On behalf of the GRAC board and North Raleigh Ministries, thank you for all you do for your patients and our community. Sandy
A Message from Sandy about our Community Support Project
On behalf of Guardian ad Litem, thank you for your commitment to their Holiday giving program and our community support project. With your donations, we were not only able to fulfill the wish lists of our 4 children, we will also be providing Guardian ad Litem with $140.00 of Amazon gift cards. These gift cards will be used to fulfill the wish lists of children who enter the program in November and December. As always, GRAC is “All In” when supporting our community service projects!
As the holiday season begins, may you find time to spend with your families, take time for you and recharge for 2021.
Wishing you and your families a safe and Happy Holiday season!
