Women and children who have had to flee from an abusive situation are going through a very difficult ordeal. Saving Grace is an organization that helps shield and provide a sense of safety and comfort in these situations. Those families that are sheltered by Saving Grace need a little joy this Christmas season. Most have left a situation with only the clothes on their backs. The "Adopt A Family" program will help shower these families with some joy when they need it most. "It allows the community to come together and make donations such as toys, coats, food donations for families who have left their homes with little or nothing at all, and just providing for them a comfortable holiday atmosphere at the shelter when things are really hectic." Paula Little with Saving Grace says you can go to their website to see a wish list of items. They also welcome cash donations. They ask you deliver your gifts, unwrapped to their offices in Bend, Redmond, Madras and Prineville through December 21st. We have a link to the Saving Grace website on our links page.
