FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITIES When registering for the Turkey Trot, you may contribute to the GraceWorks Fuel Bag Program. Fuel Bags are small bags filled with nutritious and easily prepared food items. Each Friday, teachers discreetly pack the Fuel Bags in the children’s backpacks before they leave for the weekend, helping to supplement their food at home. You may also donate to this program online quickly and securely by visiting here.
Additionally, please consider putting together a fundraising team to raise funds for various GraceWorks programs. Set a goal of $100, $500, $1000 or more! Your support will help struggling Williamson County families. To start, join or donate to a fundraising team, visit this link.
