Save your Family Fresh/Econofoods grocery ​receipts!
We’re raising money for Grace Place meals through the
Direct Your Dollars Program!
  • Every time you shop at a Family Fresh or Econofoods store, save your receipts!
    • Complete original receipt
  • Once we’ve collected $150,000 in receipts, we can turn them in, and receive a $1,000 check for Grace Place!
  • We will be doing this indefinitely.
  • For every $150,000 in receipts, we get $1000!
A Direct Your Dollars box is located near the Welcome Center in the entry.
We are excited at the generous response to the small group sign ups! Small groups are beginning to meet so watch for information from small group leaders if you have signed up. We are grateful for the volunteers who are leading each group. The hope and purpose of these groups is to build relationships and devotional lives in Christ.
