Helping Senior Neighbors

An elderly couple is attempting to move into an easier living arrangement but needs some assistance.

They have furniture that needs to be removed from the home so it can be disposed of.

The City of Grand Rapids Code Enforcement Dept. has agreed to haul the discarded furniture away for free if GPNA can find help for these neighbors in getting the items out of the house and onto the street.

If you know of a church, service group or individuals that would like to be part of this collaborative neighbor assistance effort, please contact Fran at fdalton@gpnagr.org or call 241-2443.

Thanks much. This is a great opportunity to pool neighborhood and city resources to help someone in need.

Living Hungry’s “Not 1 Homeless Hungry Student” Packing Party

4,000 children, toddlers to teenagers at Palm Beach County school, are homeless and Living Hungry.

Homeless children suffer without enough fuel in their bodies to realize their life’s true potential, never mind overcome the stress and setbacks of growing up in poverty. Many children and teens endure 68 hours over the weekend without eating a meal until back at school again on Monday morning. This is the problem Living Hungry’s “Not 1 Homeless Hungry” Packing event was born to solve. Participants will delight in packing a weekend’s worth of nourishing, kid-approved food items, then hand-writing a personal note of encouragement or inspiration for the homeless child to opens their bag.

WHO: Anyone can pack a bag
HOW: Buffet style or Table Stations work
WHEN: Takes 3-4 minutes per bag
HOW MANY:: People like to pack 1, 2, 3 bags
WHAT: Packing in sequence 10 breakfast, lunch, dinner offerings into a “Filling Station” Bag with Your Client’s Logo
WHY: Pure joy. You should see the smiles!
Watch this video & experience the joy yourself >> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhXxrKp3Rvc&feature=youtu.be
