December 14th, 2020 Update: Thank you so much to everyone who helped put this event on! We are so grateful for the generosity of all of our toy donors, volunteers, and businesses who hosted toy collections for the event. A special shout out to YMSL Argyle for all of the work you put in to helping make our two day event possible and safe! This year, we served 70 families with a total of 170 children, and distributed 505 gifts! We could not be more grateful to all those who made this happen, and if you would like to get involved for this event next year, please email kjones@glrtx.org and stay tuned on website for dates and details. We wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!

Every Christmas, Grace Like Rain hosts a family “shopping” event to allow our Grace Like Rain families to enjoy the shopping experience with their children for free! The season of endless gifts and Santa Clause is not always the same for families struggling to pay bills. This is why Grace Like Rain works to empower our families every Christmas season not only with the resources they need, but the Christmas experience they deserve. This year has been especially difficult for so many, and Grace Like Rain cannot wait to celebrate our families this holiday season. By providing gifts, we allow children the exciting adventure of exploring our GLR “store” and empower them to choose their own toys!

“One of the best things about Christmas is the experience of choosing gifts for each other, and seeing the excitement in our child’s eyes when we are able to give them just what they have been hoping for.”

~Michelle Conner, Grace Like Rain CEO

With this in mind, Grace Like Rain designed our annual Christmas store to give that experience to our hard working parents and families. If you are interested in giving back this holiday season, we appreciate any contributions to our holiday store!
