What we accomplished this year...
This year's I Love My City event was a blessing to many! Volunteers served Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in the Greater Lansing area, resulting in hundreds of lives being touched by the love and kindness of their neighbors.
To kick things off, volunteers from Block Imaging began work on repairing basketball hoops in Lansing parks. On Saturday, 16 volunteers partnered with the Homeless Angels organization and helped them with their free street store for those in need. 20 large bags of clothing, 2 grocery bags full of non-perishable food, and a truckload of household items and furniture were donated through I Love My City for the event.
On Sunday, hundreds of volunteers representing over 30 different churches, businesses, non-profit organizations and government offices spread throughout the city to serve together!
• 64 volunteers refurbished 29 basketball hoops in 14 different parks
• A team of mechanics partnered with the Deacon's Car Ministry from Trinity to provide 20 different oil changes
for single parents
• 60 volunteers assisted with yard and storm clean up in the Baker Neighborhood
• 50 crisis care kits were donated to women's shelters
• Morrow Roofing helped pick up storm debris on 5 streets in Lansing
• 6 homeless veterans were given makeovers with donated haircuts from Borics and donated
clothes and shoes from JC Penny and Walmart.
• Around 25 volunteers went downtown to the Susan G. Komen Race to hand out water and pick
up trash. The race organizers were stunned that anyone would want to help them with clean up!
• Several teams of volunteers went out to randomly bless people with gift cards and prayer. One man
teared up when given $150 to Meijer saying, "You have no idea how your kindness has changed our family.
We didn't know how we were going to make it. Now we have hope."
• 12 volunteers spent $620 in quarters at two different laundromats to assist people who could not afford
to wash their cloths - one man who witnessed the ministry was so touched that he bought pizza for the
