School Clothing Closet Program

You have a couple pair of jeans but you’re quickly outgrowing those.

Help Bessie Retire

Uncategorized
Bessie has worked hard all of her life and she’s dreaming of retirement, or at least cutting back to part-time work.  She’s familiar to almost all of the Cup of Grace volunteers who help at the Community Meal every week.  She’s been loyal to Amy and has withstood the harsh Idaho winters in her old age, transporting food to and from Amy’s house and the Spirit Lake Senior Center.  Still don’t know who Bessie is?  Bessie is the Cup of Grace van!

Buddy Bags

Uncategorized
  Cup of Grace and the Spirit Lake Police Department have teamed up to provide area children with "Buddy Bags".  These bags are filled with a variety of items like blankets, coloring books, snacks, stickers, a toy or stuffed animal and books that officers carry in their patrol cars to help comfort children who are going through tough or traumatic situations. Having something to hold and bond with during unusual or scary situations makes a world of difference putting the heart and mind of a child at ease and helps them remember that our officers are their friends. If you would like to help us with items to donate or make a $15.00 donation per bag, click on the link below. Donate Now Contact Us Thank you for helping your…
