A cooperative program of First CRC and Love in Action
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 in Action counselor to determine need. During this case management meeting often other needs are determined leading to families taking advantage of Love in Action’s other free services provided by its partner churches. Love in Action also takes requests from those who would like to donate a working appliance.
In 2017, 70 appliances were donated and 78 appliances were delivered to 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 in Action at 616-846-2701.
