As the weather gets cooler, we are reminded of the members of our community who might need a helping hand with the gift of an extra scarf, pair of gloves, or warm knit hat. But often we forget about the daily need for things so easily taken for granted; like diapers.

The Kalamazoo Gospel Mission is in desperate need of diapers of all sizes. Consider throwing a package in your cart when you're picking up dinner groceries tonight. While we're at it, lets think about the other daily needs the Mission might need, but is often overlooked:

  • Feminine Hygiene Products
  • Shampoo
  • Toothpaste/Toothbrush
  • Combs/Brushes
  • Deoderant
  • Laundry Detergent
  • Activities for Children (Coloring books, puzzles, small toys, pacifiers, etc)

It's so easy to remember those in need this time of year, but the need persists daily. Consider donating every season, not just around the holidays. Donations can be dropped off at The Mission between 8:30a and 5pm, or you can also submit a monetary donation by clicking here.
