Grace Centers of Hope Seeking Winter Clothing Donations
(CGH, Dec. 4, 2019)
Pontiac, Oak Park, Waterford, MI- Grace Centers of Hope (GCH) CEO Pastor Kent Clark is encouraging Metro Detroit residents to donate gently-used winter clothing (coats, hats, scarves, gloves, etc.) to the nonprofit, which will distribute the items to the individuals and families it serves on a daily basis.
Any remaining items will be donated to the nonprofit’s four thrift stores.
Donations can be dropped off at GCH, 35 E. Huron St. in Pontiac, or at each of the four store locations (see list below).
To schedule a large donation pick-up, call (855) 435-7424. For more information about GCH and its four thrift stores, visit www.gracecentersofhope.org.
GCH is experiencing a shortage in donations and inventory to support the people it is helping through its life-saving programs and services for men, women and children, many of whom come from families facing addiction issues in addition to homelessness. “With the upcoming winter predicted to be a harsh one, we anticipate a strong need for winter apparel donations,” said Pastor Kent Clark, CEO of Grace Centers of Hope. “This is a great opportunity for folks to clean out their closets and help someone in need.”
Grace Centers of Hope was established in 1942 as a homeless shelter and has grown and evolved into one of the oldest and largest faith-based outreach organizations to disadvantaged individuals and families in Michigan. The organization accepts no government funding and 100 percent of its revenues are obtained through private support, fundraising initiatives and its four thrift stores.
