Luggage Needed | November 17, 2019

Did you know that in Michigan alone, there are over 13,000 at-risk children and youth? Did you also know that many of these children have nothing to carry their belongings in but flimsy trash bags? This is unacceptable. Trash bags are slippery, hard to carry, and often break!

Wedgewood Christian Services, a local Christian residential care and counseling ministry, is partnering with Calvary’s Forever Hope Ministry (adoption and foster care ministry) and the Missions & Outreach Department to show the at-risk children and youth in our communities that we care by providing suitcases. Through this simple act of providing suitcases, we are demonstrating that we recognize their worth as image bearers of Christ. How can you get involved?

Donate: Now through November 24, you can drop off your new or gently used luggage at the Clothes Closet Drop-off, located at the far west end of the building.  Please note: Next Sunday, November 24 is the last day to donate luggage.

Learn More: Mary Monsma, Associate Director of Admission and Kori Thompson, Advancement Officer from Wedgwood will be at the Connection Point after both services Sunday to say thank you, accept your luggage (if you didn’t make it to the clothes closet drop-off) and to answer any questions you may have regarding Wedgwood and ways to partner.
