Dealing with the isolation and challenges of a chronic stigmatized disease demands most of their time and energy … The gifts you gave were the only Christmas presents many of these children received and meant almost as much to their parents. …the CCC Angel Tree Christmas Program … is one of our most cherished traditions. We are extremely grateful for your continued support.” GraceWorks “Stock the Pantry” Drive - Thanks to YOU Thank you for helping to fill the shelves of GraceWorks, serving families in Williamson County.
