On Saturday the 16th of June 2018 more than 100 Grace Family Church volunteers spent a morning at the Denis Hurley Centre for the 5th annual Street Store. This dignified shopping experience included free haircuts, a foot washing station, a Sorbet nail bar, and lunch provided for the men, women, and families in need. Each person that walked into the Street Store was accompanied by their very own personal shopper. The day was a great success with 1057 people served. Take a look at this highlights video from the day.
With Mandela Day around the corner, Grace Family Church is gearing up for a day filled with nation building activities.
Grace is inviting anyone who would like to spend 67 minutes giving back, to join in by making sandwiches for the hungry, donating blood, rolling yarn for their crochet training program, packing toiletries for the homeless, and planting vegetable seedlings to be packaged and sent to communities in need.
All this is happening at Grace Family Church, 400 uMhlanga Rocks Drive, on the 18th of July, from 11am – 2pm. All are invited so bring your family, friends or colleagues along as you make your mark in building a better South Africa.
“Grace uMhlanga is so central, we really felt that local businesses and individuals who want to contribute their 67 minutes to building a brighter South Africa would follow through if they had access to do so, closer to their place of work or residence” said Dave Richter Missions Director at Grace Family Church.
There will also be a Madiba Photo Wall to take pictures in front of, live music performed by the LIV Village band, and you can grab a borewors roll, artisan coffee and a range of snacks at Brew Bar Coffee on site.
Mandela Day is an opportunity for us to come together as a country to impact those in need. Therefore Grace is inviting the people of Durban to join in these Mandela Day activities, any time between 11am and 2pm.
