Red Cross Disaster Preparedness Kits

ACCESS is partnering with the American Red Cross to give out 200 Disaster Preparedness Starter Kits to the Baxter neighborhood. The Baxter neighborhood was chosen for distribution because it is one of the most fire-prone areas in Grand Rapids, as well as one of the lowest income neighborhoods. The kits will be distributed through the Marketplace at Baxter Community Center, which is one of ACCESS’ Resource Center Pantries. Donations for the kits will be accepted until September 10th. Donating items would be a great opportunity for your congregation, small group, or family to get involved! For a list of needed items, contact kanderson@ggr.redcross.org.  Donations can be dropped off at the Red Cross Chapter House 1050 Fuller Avenue NE.
