Security & Full-Time Volunteer
If you've been to any Common Grace events, you've seen a small but mighty lady running around here, there and everywhere. That's our Aunty Donna! She is the kindest, humblest and best volunteer we have ever met. She has been with us since 2016. Thank you Donna for all that you do!
