Our March Second Sunday donation for Shelter of Flint raised $509 to support this homeless shelter program. April Second Sunday will go the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan (FBEM). FBEM provides over 25 million tons of food through 415 agencies in 22 counties of eastern Michigan. From Kids Café programs, to hot meal programs at North End Soup Kitchen and First Presbyterian Church, Backpack programs for children to get weekend food coverage, water pod for Flint water crisis to bulk food distribution, the funds we donate will help locally and across eastern Michigan. $1.00 will generate over $10 in food goods. Support the buying power of this program as you are able.

Please send your nominations with an agency profile to Rayna Bick (firstname.lastname@example.org) before May 15.
