This year, ODTUG has partnered with GRACE for our community service day project.

Today, GRACE continues to be a centralized, coordinated effort of churches, businesses, and individuals donating food, clothing, money, 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. Sign up Today!
