Winter came a bit early this year. What a blast and rude introduction to what our coming winter may have in store. But, with the cold, comes the awareness that there are so many people in need, and we need to help them.The Guiding Light Mission needs you, your clothing that is. They are looking for mens socks, coats, boots, undershirts and underwear. These are the greatest needs right now that you could help with.

To make your donations of new, or gently used clothing, you may simply drop them off at the mission, 255 Division South, in downtown Grand Rapids. If you have a large donation, they will be happy to schedule a pickup by calling 616-451-0236.
