Holiday Serving Opportunities

We've compiled a list of a few local opportunities to help support our community this holiday season.




Host a Student for a Meal

Many international students spend the holidays alone in their dorm rooms and would love to join a family for a meal or holiday activity. Invite one of these students into your home anytime during November and December to spend time with you and your family. 

Send a Care Package

Families or Life Groups can send a care package to IUPUI students who cannot go home for the holidays and feel isolated. Ideas could include an encouraging note, food/candy, books, games, winter wear, decorative items for their rooms, gift cards, etc. 

To sign up for either of these opportunities, email keith.back@cru.org

Create a Blessing Box

50% of foster parents quit after the first year because of the challenges that come with foster care. Encourage a foster family by putting together a care package with items such as gift cards, games, movies, food/candy, and a handwritten note.

To sign up, email gracecarecommunities@gmail.com

Deliver Items for Care Portal

DCS caseworkers uncover critical needs of foster, kinship and bio families, and CarePortal sends those requests to local churches to fulfill. Families or individuals can schedule a time to deliver these items to families in need.

To sign up, email Jane Wiley at jane.wiley@att.net

Virtual Giving Tree

Support a student from IPS 58 by purchasing toys and other needed items. You will receive a wish list for a specific child with ideas from 4 categories (want, need, wear, read). Purchase 1 item from each category, and return unwrapped gifts to Grace Fishers by Sunday, December 13th.

Questions? E-mail denisea@gracechurch.us
