The Women of Grace Fellowship have been blessed to work in the Lord’s vineyard each fall through its Thanksgiving food drive.
The women collected 5,895 pounds of food during their annual drive held at all Masses at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church in the two weeks before Thanksgiving.
They shared the food with neighbors at Indian Land schools, Brooklyn Springs and Clinton elementary schools in Lancaster, Lancaster Children’s Home, St. Catherine’s, HOPE in Lancaster and Christian Services, Belair United Methodist Church, Missionaries of the Poor and  David Stand AME Zion Church in Lancaster.
The Knights of Columbus, Harris Teeter and Pike’s Nursery were major contributors of time and supplies.
The Women of Grace are grateful to those who responded to the annual food drive.
