January and February Outreach 2021
Habitat Grosse Pointe Partners formed in 1997, is a partnership of 15 Grosse Pointe area churches, brought together to put our faith into action through fundraising and volunteerism which directly benefits Habitat for Humanity Detroit. Grosse Pointe Congregational is a founding charter member.
The all-volunteer HGPP membership meets monthly to plan, discuss fundraising and reflect on past volunteer activities. They host volunteer opportunities on the second Saturday of each month throughout the year. In the past they have assisted in building over 100 homes in the Morningside neighborhood. HGPP has helped sponsor 20 homes through Habitat Detroit.
Habitat for Humanity Detroit has undergone a reorganization over the past several years. They have switched from building new homes to providing critical home repairs, home rehabilitation and community revitalization efforts. During this tumultuous year of 2020, HGPP has continued to put their faith into action while following CDC guidelines for social distancing and mask wearing. This summer they worked in small groups to rehab and renovate two houses in the Morningside Neighborhood that were returned to Habitat Detroit in order to get them ready to be placed on the market. As Fall approached they worked outside on landscaping and yard maintenance.
During the upcoming year, HGPP plans to partner with Habitat Detroit in giving our neighbors a “hand up” as they renovate and rehab two more properties in the Morningside Neighborhood. If you’d like to learn more about volunteer opportunities please contact Ted Fly. HGPP depends on generous donations of time, talent and treasure to accomplish these great things.
During January and February, our church is collecting donations for Habitat Grosse Pointe Partners in two ways: (1) by mailing a donation to the church office and marking it with HGPP(also in person at drive-in worship on Sundays at 10 am), or (2) by making an online donation at gpcong.org (select “Make a Gift” from the home page, then select “Monthly Outreach” on the online donation page). Every gift is important and enables HGPP to help our neighbors.
