THE SALVATION ARMY KETTLES NEED YOU!!!
It’s the time of year when red kettles for the Salvation Army pop up all around town. These kettles help to fund much needed programs that provide service to the vulnerable in our community. This year the Salvation Army is in need of more ringers. It is a wonderful way for people to get involved and be a part of the holiday spirit.
It is fun, a lovely way to give back and there are many locations which are indoors!!
If you are interested–just go to registertoring.com and look for Grand Rapids locations. The kettles are out–so any time between now and Christmas. If The Salvation Army doesn’t get enough volunteers they have to pay people, which dips into the funds raised.
LOCATION: 1215 Fulton St E, Grand Rapids, MI 49503

Thank you so much for continuing to provide support to those in need during these exceptionally worrisome times. We are so grateful to have you all as partners in this important work.
Thank you for making this opportunity a blessing to so many!

JOIN US AS WE REHAB A MOBILE HOME
FOR A DESERVING FAMILY
Mayflower has generously supported PIH which has given a life-changing leg up to 16 families over the last several years. Despite the fact that these homes start out in poor condition, they turn out beautifully with the help of contractors and volunteers. Crews can help with renovation or assist with move-in of furniture that had been donated.
For a family who basically has nothing, Mayflower and PIH are able to provide all they needed for a fresh start.
Mayflower supports Kevin and Susan Fry,
Founders and Directors of Eden Ministries Inc. and Eden Children’s Village, in their mission to care for and raise orphaned and disadvantaged children while preparing them for adult life as productive citizens of the Kingdom of God.
