Every year, ODTUG Kscope attendees support the local community through a service project.
This year we're partnering with Grapevine's GRACE.
ODTUG Kscope is a singularly unique event in Oracle user group conferences. One reason is our signature Community Service Day project, during which ODTUG Kscope attendees give back to the local community.
This year, ODTUG has partnered with GRACE for our community service day project. Based in Grapevine, Texas, GRACE is a nonprofit relief agency that provides food, clothing, financial assistance, and other vital necessities to people who are struggling with a limited income or recent emergency. Today, GRACE continues to be a centralized, coordinated effort of churches, businesses, and individuals donating food, clothing, monetary donations, and even professional services to Grapevine, Colleyville, and Southlake residents, as well as homeless and transient families in need. Programs have grown to include low cost medical services, transitional housing, and general emergency assistance (food, clothes, furniture, financial assistance, information and referrals).

ODTUG Kscope attendees will be volunteering in the Donation Station. We will be accepting and unloading donations, and sorting the donations in their different categories.
If you want to join ODTUG Kscope in giving back to this truly amazing organization, sign up today! Space is limited.
GRACE relies on the generosity of individuals and community-minded companies to support its mission of providing assistance to individuals and families in crisis and guidance toward self-sufficiency. Companies or individuals donating $300 or more by May 9, 2022, will have their names or logos featured on the back of the official Kathleen McCasland Community Service Day t-shirt. No donation is too small!
