There’s one simple and important way you can help make this season a truly happy one for our neighbors in need within the Grand Rapids community: Mel Trotter Ministries’ 2015 Brown Bag Food Drive.

More than 43,000 pounds of food was gathered through our Brown Bag Food Drive last year. This was 8,000 pounds more than our originally-stated goal, but our shelves still ran empty when springtime rolled around. The Drive runs now until December 3.
