A cooperative program of First CRC and Love INC
First Christian Reformed Church has coordinated the Appliance Ministry for twenty years. The Appliance Ministry receives donations of working gently used appliances – washers, dryers, refrigerators, and stoves – and delivers them to families who are in need of and cannot afford to purchase these basic necessities.
Families who need appliances meet with a Love INC counselor to determine need. During this case management meeting often other needs are determined leading to families taking advantage of Love INCs other free services provided by its partner churches. Love INC also takes requests from those who would like to donate a working appliance.
In 2011, 185 families donated 208 appliances. And 200 appliances were delivered to 158 families in need.
First CRC is committed to caring for families in the community. For more information on the Appliance Ministry contact First CRC at 616-842-6370 or Love INC at 616-846-2701.
