SavedByGrace-webSaved by Grace (savedbygrace.org), a Christian clothing line dedicated to assisting homeless families in shelters across the nation, this week announced a planned donation of 1,000 garments to Buckhead Christian Ministry (buckheadchristianministry.org) at the International Christian Retail Show (ICRS). The CBA convention will be held June 22-25 in Atlanta.

Saved by Grace recently launched the Grace for Two Project (GF2P, gracefortwo.org), which provides clothing to homeless families in shelters through a buy one, give one model with participating retailers and ambassadors from universities and churches.

“We are very thankful to ICRS for providing local customers with the opportunity to learn about our efforts to make a difference in the homeless population throughout the U.S.,” said Lauren Breiding, co-founder of Saved by Grace and GF2P. “This is a big show, and we are thrilled to provide our clothing line as an example for how Christian organizations can impact their local communities. We are aggressively recruiting Grace for Two ambassadors to help us spread the word, fundraise and earn some money for themselves along the way!”

The nondenominational GF2P encourages acts of compassion as a person engages in everyday shopping. The purchase of a GF2-endorsed item allows a new garment to be donated to a person or family in need. By working with community organizers and homeless shelters, the organization has identified needy families and their “most wanted” products such as socks or underwear and other necessary items.
