Important Outreach Update
Given the current circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, the usual bimonthly Outreach programming is adapting to meet the needs of our community. The charity we had earmarked for April, the World Wildlife Foundation—Australia, is being discontinued (please know that all funds donated to WWF in March will still go to that cause). In its place, and for the foreseeable future, we encourage all GPCC members to donate to any charity of their choice in support of the efforts to fight COVID-19. If you choose to make a donation to a charity of your choice, please do not send funds to the church; rather, send funds directly to the organizations themselves. We have decided on this course of action because money is needed right now by all organizations, and we want to cut out the church as the middle man and get the money to these organizations as quickly as possible. Also, we do not want Tiffany or other church members to have to come to the church building unnecessarily in order to process donations to these organizations. As a suggestion, you might consider this local effort to feed local first responders:
Food for the Front Lines: This effort was started---just last week---by GP Farms mom Monica Mourad. She and others are collecting monetary donations and using the money to purchase food from our local grocers and restaurants for our first responders at St John, Beaumont Grosse Pointe, and other local hospitals. A great way to support local businesses and our amazing first responders. Check out their Facebook page by searching “Food for the Front Lines.” Send donations via Venmo to @Monica-Mourad OR mail/drop off checks (made out to Monica Mourad) to:
Grosse Pointe Farms MI 48236
