INDIANAPOLIS, IN, January 14, 2019 -- Grace Church announces that it is extending its Care Center services to people impacted by the government shutdown, including federal employees. Beginning on January 22, 2019, federal employees and their families can visit the Care Center’s free Choice Food Pantry during the shutdown.

“The reason we created the Grace Care Center was to properly care for one another and for our community. People are experiencing hardship across the country because of the government being closed. They’re losing paychecks, food stamps, access to low cost housing, and other benefits. If you’re someone who’s been impacted by this, we want to serve you and provide relief to you and your family in tangible ways.” – Keith Carlson, Pastor of Outreach and Care, Grace Church

Grace Church will also welcome donations and volunteers to help serve the nearly 600 families per week who access the Care Center. People interested in receiving care or volunteering can find more information on Grace’s website.

The Care Center is open for service every week on:

  • Mondays from 6:00-8:00 p.m.

  • Tuesdays from 6:00-8:00 p.m. 

  • Wednesday from 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
