    We collect and donate sets of school supplies to our neighborhood elementary school to ensure that each student has a full set of supplies on the first day of school.

In collaboration with Interfaith Action of Southwest Michigan, we collect food, clothing, and personal care items each fall for area harvesters and migrant workers. On an ongoing basis, we collect new and gently used clothing to supply the Emergency Room at our local hospital with clothing for patients who need something to wear upon discharge.
