I am trying to raise money to buy supplies for care packages for homeless individuals in the Grand Rapids area. I am working with Dégagé Ministries, a local organization that offers help and hope to homeless and disadvantaged individuals in our community.
Every Friday the Dégagé Life Enrichment Center gives away free hygiene packs to anyone that wants them. I would like to help them with this as well as add in a couple special items as a Christmas gift. Below is a list of things that would be included in the care packages. If you are able to, a donation would be greatly appreciated. All proceeds will go towards buying supplies for these Christmas care packages. I hope to get enough supplies to make 50 Christmas Care packages.
I am so blessed to have a warm bed and warm meal every night. I am blessed to have friends and family that I know would support me if I were to ever go through a rough patch. I am beyond blessed and beyond grateful. I want to help and support others who don’t have as much as I do.
I hope to continue this throughout the year but for now hopefully this will help during the cold December days.
Please share this with your family and friends!
