Current Outreach Opportunities
APRIL 16 - APRIL 23
This year during our MCREST week, we are helping at their brand new facility for women and children in Mount Clemens! We will make breakfast lunch and dinner for 40 women and children. Every day we bring the food to them and serve them dinner. We are also looking to spend time with them playing games, getting to know them, and showing them the love of Jesus. We will need help with food donations, packing and prepping, and then cooking and serving the meals.
We had an amazing turn out! Over 150 people came together to assemble food for Kids Against Hunger. Many were volunteers from outside Macomb attenders.
Food assembled will be distributed to three organizations:
TRAINING TOMORROW'S LEADERS
Workday was a huge success even with the snow!
We trimmed the landscape bushes and cleared the parking lot perimeter of debris. An early spring clean up is planned to trim up the hostas, day lilies, tall grasses.
- light covers cleaned of dead bugs
- hallways vacuumed
- first aid kit installed in the kitchen
- the mower battery stored for the winter
- light fixure maintenance completed: emergency light battery replaced, Welcome Center light working, light in connector hallway repaired, and sensor in the children's restroom replaced.
Once a week, the reading coaches work with the same 2-3 students during the school day to give them 20 to 25 minutes of uninterrupted reading practice. Many of these children do not get this type of attention at home. It helps them build word recognition skills, confidence in reading, and comprehension of what they are reading. Training is provided by the school's reading specialist.

Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood. It is essential for surgeries, cancer treatment, chronic illnesses, and traumatic injuries. Whether a patient receives whole blood, red cells, platelets or plasma, this lifesaving care starts with one person making a generous donation.
