Grace Church partners with police for Adopt-A-Family

From staff reports:

Federal Way Police Department and Grace Church are partnering for their annual Adopt-A-Family Program.

Grace Church, located at 1232 SW Dash Point Road, will host an event where parents attending the event can shop for their children’s individual needs, while the children are doing crafts and baking cookies. Each family will go home with wrapped gifts and food for a holiday meal. The event will be held 7 to 9 p.m. Dec. 14 at Grace Church.

“It is a privilege to help facilitate yet another expression of our officers and police support staff as they continue to serve our city, and serve our neediest families,” said Senior Pastor Jon McIntosh in a news release. “We are deeply grateful to the Federal Way Police Department, their labor groups, and the Federal Way School District for the way they model both servant leadership and the power of partnership.”

The Federal Way School District will identify and provide Grace Church a number of families in greatest need. The public may support this event by dropping off a new unwrapped toy or food donation to Grace Church or the Federal Way Police Department. Financial donations may also be made.
