Each year, Newcomers works with one or more local charities or organizations in need. We may make a monetary donation and/or some of our members may volunteer their time at an organization.
For the 2019-2020 year, our club will donate to the following organizations:
GRAND RAPIDS HQ
This drop-in center for homeless and runaway youth is located in downtown Grand Rapids. It provides a safe space to meet basic needs, such as meals, clothing, laundry services and hygiene. Resources include community connections to support case management, counseling, housing and relationship needs. Education, employment readiness training and accesss to healthcare are also a focus.
