It's that time again!!! Our 7th Annual Backpack and School Supply Giveaway is fast approaching.

August 24, 2014 from 1pm to 3pm

We are calling on the "Friends of GSCC" again

to assist with this very important event.

We plan on distributing approximately 250 fully stocked backpacks this year and we hope that our supporters can find it in their heart to donate either cash or items from the list below. Any amount or quantity will help us. Our budget is very limited, but the need is growing. We want to help the children get a good start in their school year.

Many stores like WalMart have begun their school supply sales and items can be purchased for really low prices. These sales change week to week, but supplies will diminish quickly

More information on the 7th Annual Back Pack and School Supply Giveaway will be forthcoming in the near future, but please try to help us out if you can. To donate goods, choose from the list below and call Mark at 313-452-0684 to arrange for pick-up or drop-off at the Community Center.

NO SHOWS on install dates from contractors who are GETTING PAID to do the work

I want to be as professional as possible. Don’t want to come off as being bitter. When you have a non-profit organization and it depends on donations to function we can’t have people or corporations not following through on pledges.

NO SHOWS on install dates from contractors who are GETTING PAID to do the work.

Example:  I was WXYZ’s Person Of The Week in July. They asked if I wanted something done right away what would it be. I said windows on the community center to make it look more inviting and professional. The same night it aired we got a call asking if we had anybody willing to donate for the windows. An amount was pledged and also a company that could do the work. An appointment for measurements was scheduled and kept. An install date (2 and ½ weeks) was scheduled. NO WINDOWS. After calls from me to company, another meeting was scheduled. New install date October 9th 2013. Came and passed NO WINDOWS. Phone calls and emails have gone unanswered. We had some funds to go towards the windows from other donors and this information was told to the first donor reducing her pledged amount. What are Non-Profits to do in a situation like this?
