You may wonder who supports us and where some of our resources come from that allow us to work with our amazing kids. So we wanted to introduce you to some of the people and organizations that partner with us. We are so grateful for each partner and the unique ways that we can collaborate with them; from collaborating on programs and fields trips to providing everyday supplies.
Embolden Studio out of Zeeland has been a faithful partner through their annual Share the Love Event. Owner and photographer Christy holds two full days of portrait sessions where parents can get their child's portrait taken in exchange for a donation to ACTS. This year our request was for cleaning products as well as supplies for our new kitchen at the ACTS House. In years past we've focused on art supplies and a variety of other items. Share the Love is a fun event for families getting photos taken and we deeply appreciate the outpouring of donations ACTS receives.
Beechwood Church is one of our partner churches. Early on in the summer a group of volunteers joined us during a program night to lead games and host a pizza party. Our kids and teens had so much fun playing games and eating with these volunteers. Anytime that our kids can spend quality time with caring volunteers is a win in our book! It was such a gift for them to help us meet our goal of providing a meal to our kids each time ACTS meets.
Real Life Fellowship Church has been supporting ACTS since its infancy. We are grateful for all the ways in which this congregation has loved on, encouraged and blessed our ministry over the years. One of the most tangible and on-going ways that RLF has supported ACTS has been through its food distribution once a month. The 3rd Monday of each month a truck and crew of friendly faces from the church pulls up with hundreds of pounds of food for us. We have a chance to share a few stories and pray together, over the food that will be shared. This gift and support each month helps underwrite the cost of feeding our youth both a snack and full meal 4 nights a week, 50 weeks out of the year.
We are so grateful for the many ways that we are supported! If you would like to learn more about becoming one of our partners we invite you to contact us! There are general ways to contribute to our mission as well. Please visit our support page.
