Faculty giving back

GRCC Faculty team up with Hope Network to provide holiday gifts to children

Posted on Updated on

gofundmeimage1We need your help!!!  The Faculty Association at Grand Rapids Community College has partnered with Hope Network’s DART program to provide gifts for children in need!

We are asking GRCC faculty to please join the Association in sponsorship gifts for 2 children this holiday season.

Two ways to help: You can donate money on our gofundme site at https://www.gofundme.com/undxuupe  or donate gifts (see need list and drop off site below).  We will use 100% of the funds donated to sponsor children this holiday season on behalf of the faculty at Grand Rapids Community College.

What: Hope Network’s DART Program is a residential treatment program for children ages 8-18 years old with severe developmental and behavioral disorders. The children they serve live in a special facility and rarely see their families. Please help contribute by making this holiday season special for these children.

When: Donations will be accepted until Thursday, December 17.

Who: We are sponsoring a 13 year old boy and an 8 year old girl who are DART children. Any additional funds collected beyond what these two children need will be used to sponsor an additional child!

Donate gifts directly: If you would like to purchase a gift from the children’s wish list, see the link below. You can drop off donations on the 4th Floor of College Park Plaza (Christina McElwee) or in 212 of the Applied Technology Center (Katie Vander Meer). You can also drop off financial donations at either site as well. Wish list link:

About us: This gofundme is organized by faculty members Christina McElwee and Katie Vander Meer on behalf of the Grand Rapids Community College Faculty Association. All funds and gifts collected will be reported out at Faculty Council.

Thank you so much GRCC Faculty in sharing in the joy of this holiday season. Please feel free to pass along this funding page to others who might wish to support Hope Network’s DART program!
