During the 2016-2017 school year, Gathered by Grace had the privilege of giving 742 books, worth $5,500, to the classrooms and libraries of young adult educators at 10 Montgomery schools, grades
K-12. We are thankful to All Stars Helping Kids for the grant funding that allowed us to impact our community in such a special way.
Following Hurricane Harvey, Gathered by Grace raised funds to donate diapers and supplies for the Houston Diaper Bank. Partnering with Turenne PharMedCo, a long-term healthcare business in Montgomery, Gathered by Grace donated 1,772 diapers and 68 packs of wipes. Turenne donated the shipping costs to transport the items across the country. Click here to read more on al.com.
On Giving Tuesday 2017, Gathered by Grace established two new Little Libraries for west Montgomery! Thanks to a Community Grant from the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Beta Nu Omega Chapter, Gathered by Grace set up Little Libraries at McIntyre Community Center and the West End Boys and Girls Club.
In April 2018, we added our third Little Library at Homeview Life Center, also in west Montgomery! Our community partners at Turenne PharMedCo gave the gift of reading this Christmas by donating books for this new library and Christ Lutheran Church, Prattville gave donations to help purchase the library! We look forward to continuing to give the gift of reading! We are so grateful for their partnership!
Gathered by Grace is a community of young adults in Montgomery and Tuskegee, Alabama, gathered by Christ, growing spiritually, serving our community, getting to know our neighbor, welcoming all, and sharing the Good News of Jesus.
