Stepping Out for Heartside! - 12/12/13

The Social Charity Club of Grand Rapids stepped up with many community members to support Heartside Ministry at the Holiday Bar in Grand Rapids last Thursday. Every attendee donated $10, and 100% of the proceeds benefited Heartside Ministry. One thousand dollars were raised for the many programs that Heartside Ministry offers for neighbors who are, or have been, homeless, with little or no income. 
Many brave and generous people came out on the snowy roads to help Heartside Ministry raise funds and friends at the Social Charity Club's December mixer.  The Holiday Bar was at its most festive and hosted 100+ revelers!

Jordan Carson of WOTV4 will air her coverage of Heartside Ministry and the event on her next show which airs Tuesday at 11AM during the Social Sizzle on Eight West. A big thanks to Jordan and the Social Charity Club for selecting Heartside Ministry as its December beneficiary!

This Week at Heartside - 12/6/13

Some photo requests started the week.
This one had perfect, although inadvertent, background placement.
Heartside closes the first Tuesday of every month for staff day ~ reports, training, education, and time together.  This afternoon we shared lunch at the Downtown Market.
The next day Snoop sent his greetings, and Friday brought us a newly manufactured stool for the framing room, courtesy of Dave Sorensen from Flexible Montisa, that joined the new framing table (see earlier posting).
Our last highlight of the week was our Volunteer Appreciation Lunch. We couldn't be who we are without our dedicated volunteers, and a special thank you to Fountain Street Church who provided our meal today.
Cheers to everyone who gives the precious gift of time!
