The local nonprofit recently purchased a 17,685-square-foot office building and attached warehouse, Mark Woolverton, chief development officer for GRACE, said in an email. The site is at 1060 Texan Trail in Grapevine.
GRACE’s current donation station sits on North Scribner Street, but the organization has outgrown the space. It also has several limitations for donors to access it. GRACE is planning to sell that property and use the revenue to pay for renovations on the new donation station, according to GRACE’s project document.
The new building will be an improvement in terms of accessibility for visitors and work space for volunteers, Woolverton said in his email.
“The office space [at the new site] will provide plenty of room for staff and volunteers to sort donations, while the large warehouse is more than sufficient to store the seasonal ware that will go to our three resale stores,” he said.
No opening date for the new station has been set.
A capital campaign will also run through 2022 to pay for improvements. Donors can pledge an amount and pay in installments over a three-year period, Woolverton said in his email.
“We hope to have a substantial portion of the full cost pledged or received by the end of 2020,” he said. “The importance of donation station to the GRACE mission cannot be overstated. GRACE truly begins where people in the community comes forward with their gifts of clothing, housewares, and other items.”
