Please check out the article in the December 8th issue of The Catholic Spirit for a full history of the Grace Family Center. The article is also available on-line www.TheCatholicSpirit.com.
The Westonka Food Shelf and Pennywise Thrift Store have provided food, clothing and hope to those of our community in greatest need for over 45 years.
Unfortunately, the Annex structure that once housed these vital charities was found to be in an unrepairable condition and needed to be replaced in order for them to continue their service to the community. Our Lady of the Lake initiated a capital campaign to unite the area in the effort to raise the large sum of money necessary to build the Grace Family Center and provide the Westonka Food Shelf and Pennywise Thrift Store a home for decades to come.
The new Grace Family Center building is now complete and the PennyWise Thrift Store and Westonka Food Shelf are now operating from within those new walls.
Your contribution will help to pay for the cost we incurred to build this structure and allow our common call to service to continue.
Please see links below to contribute, to learn more about the capital campaign or to view renderings of the proposed structure.
