Opportunities to Help Our Community

Gladiola School Supplies_Header Image

If you have been looking for a way to help those in our neighborhood who need support, we have a few ways you can help! Please consider purchasing any of the items listed below they will be distributed at either Gladiola School or Family Network. Your participation is appreciated.

School Supplies for Gladiola School

This fall we are hoping to continue our annual traditional of collecting school supplies for Gladiola School. Since we do not know the exact school attendance will take, we are hoping to acquire as many school supplies as possible so we can offer some to the classroom children and some to those who may be learning from home. Either/both places of learning will need to have items in order to facilitate the student's learning experience. We are sharing this list now since the local stores are already putting these items on sale.

Since we do not know yet when the school building will be open, please purchase these items and bring them to church either on Sunday for our Parking Lot worship time or during the week when someone is in the office. Nan Larson will collect and deliver to Gladiola School when we know the timing. Sincere thanks in advance for your generosity to the "little people" of Gladiola School!

Food Pantry Items for Family Network

Christ Lutheran Cares - you can be a part of filling some of the needs of our wider community. We are starting a collection to donate to Family Network, a food pantry down the street at 1029 - 44th Street SW, Wyoming, MI. We can do this until our Personal Care Pantry with UCOM begins again.

You may bring your donations to church when you come for Sunday parking lot church and drop them off in the plastic tub by the multi-use room door on the east side of the church, or you can bring them to church during the week when someone is in the office. Thank you in advance for your caring support of our fellow citizens in need! Donated items will be delivered to Family Network by Jane Ward.
