Starting in March, Higher Ground will be looking for volunteers on Thursday evenings from 5:30pm to 8:00pm. This program, through the First United Methodist Church in Big Rapids, offers a free meal after which everyone breaks off into different classes of their choice on topics like parents, nutrition, emergency preparedness, etc. They end the night with participants using points they acquired through their participation to purchase items in the Higher Ground store. This is a great opportunity for students to get involved in their community. The Thursdays in March will be the 8th, 15th, and 22nd and the Thursdays in April will be the 5th, 12th, and 19th.
For more information or to sign up, please contact the Community Resource Coordinator, John Klever at 231-796-4312 or email Kleverj@michigan.gov.
