DISASTER ASSISTANCE TEAM HEADS TO NEW JERSEY

Completed paperwork is expected at that time, along with a deposit on the $250 cost for the trip.

MISSION IN ACTION!
Here are a few of the ministries we support through the generous giving of RGPC members and friends: Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan
What We Do
For more than 35 years, Gleaners Community Food Bank has been “nourishing communities by feeding hungry people.” Last year, Gleaners distributed 41 million pounds of emergency food to more than 550 partner soup kitchens, shelters and pantries in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Livingston and Monroe counties. We alleviate hunger by providing the equivalent of more than 100,000 meals per day to people who otherwise cannot afford the food they need. Of every dollar donated, Gleaners uses 93 cents for food and food programs. One dollar provides three meals for a hungry neighbor.
