The Community Closet
Soul work involves both inward reflection and outward action. GraceStone Sanctuary seeks to connect individuals and groups to our local community. One of the ways we are doing this is through the Community Closet. As part of the registration fee, participants are asked to bring a donation for one of the local organizations that provide community assistance. You will receive information about the particular organization sponsored by each event along with a list of needed items when you register for an event.
