When you think of volunteering what comes to mind? Is it helping with the kiddos or serving Wednesday night dinner? If you think of volunteering, and want to help outside of Calvary, consider David’s House.
David’s House has five adult foster care homes and currently serves 43 residents and their families. They also provide community living support services for individuals living in the Greater Grand Rapids area. Their ministry focuses on “physical care, spiritual care, and emotional care” for all of their friends with special needs.
If any of this resonates with you here is what they are looking for: people to play games with the residents, go on walks with the residents, help with spring clean-ups and so much more.
On November 10, you have the opportunity to meet with David’s House President, Casey Kuperus, and Director of Advancement, Greg Vander Goot who will be at the Connection Point after both services. They are there to answer any questions you may have about David’s House and to help you connect through volunteering.
Luggage Needed: Wedgwood Christian Services (a local, Christian residential care and counseling ministry) needs new or gently used luggage (not duffle bags) for youth who are discharged home, or to a new placement for foster care. Donations will be accepted November 17 – 24 at the Clothes Closet Drop-Off. The garage is located at the far west end of the lower level.
Mary Monsma and Kori Thompson from Wedgwood will be at the Connection Point after both services next Sunday, November 17 to say thank you and connect with those who are donating.
