Back to School Store
The Undie 500
Each year members of Grace donate school supplies to the Green Bay Service League for the operation of their Back to School Store. Needs are publicized through the congregational newsletter and bulletin. During the months of June and July, a labeled collection box can be found at church in the Narthex. For several years we have been contributed to the supply of underwear available at the store so generously that our goal is now the low carbon footprint Undie 500!
