Faith in the 517 Logo

Join the Faith in the 517 group on Saturday, November 2nd for a day of service benefiting local youth. Did you know one in four children in the Greater Lansing area aren’t certain where their next meal is coming from? Our goal for the day is to assemble 100,000 food packs for mid-Michigan youth, all while enjoying fellowship, learning and fun! There is no cost to attend, however donations are appreciated to cover the cost of the food packs. (As little as $1 covers the price of fifteen meals!)

Click on the blue button below to donate. (Registration is now closed.)
