Hello Again Community Leaders!
Time for our next community engagement celebration! So happy to now have onboard supporting our efforts is the entire Neighborhood Association Collaborative (NAC). We will continue to build a format that fits our strategic global community engagement initiatives within the City of GR and the surrounding communities within our Counties.
Please come out and meet your Neighbors on March 24th! This will be another evening to engage each other around important issues like housing, public safety, business development and overall health & wellness, in a more personal and honest way. We will have a Spades card tournament, food, music, and more equitable, diverse and inclusive FUN! For a $27 donation you’ll be entered into a double elimination Spades tournament, and be assigned a partner to play with. You will also participate in a fundraiser supporting our boys and girls skating program, have a chance to win prizes, and more importantly, immediately impact other human beings’ lives in a simple, but very positive way.
Along with many supporters and partners over the past year, this event has helped strengthen relationships with the GRPD, Food Co-op, GVSU, NAC, etc. Strengthening our public safety stance. Local banks such as Northpointe, Old National, PNC and Choice One Banks have sponsored and supported our focus on housing issues. One of the most beneficial results of this series has been the identification of new leadership within the community. The issues of our community begin and end with the WORK efforts and intelligence of those within it. Together we are better!
We ask that you RSVP by calling 616.710.5730 or 603.531.2375 by March 17th. You can also donate online at; https://seedsofpromisegr.org/
