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 [email protected] or call 241-2443.

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