Giving takes on many forms here at Grace Lutheran Church! One of the unique ways YOU can give is to participate in our regular Blood Drives. Working with the Puget Sound Blood Center, donating blood at GLC is a gift that can benefit so many. Staff from the Blood Center bring their equipment right to GLC, setting up in the Narthex. Volunteers from GLC check you in, then a blood technician takes your vital information and sets you up to donate blood. The entire process is safe, efficient and life-changing for someone in need of your blood type.
Interested? Schedule your time for our next Blood Drive with Don and Marlys Johnson @ 253.833.9238.

Des Moines Food Bank
Support of the local Des Moines Food Bank is a high priority of outreach into our community, with weekly food and cash contributions, as well as volunteer opportunities. You will find a grocery cart in the Fireside Room for your food donations throughout the year, and our Thanksgiving Eve service offering focus includes bringing food that is delivered to the Food Bank that evening. Many congregational members volunteer at the Food Bank throughout the week, and the Christmas Gift-Wrapping event at The Commons in Federal Way, is organized by a Grace member. There are usually over 150 volunteers sharing their time at the Gift-Wrapping event alone, with all proceeds going directly to the Des Moines Food Bank.
