What Difference Can 1,500 United Methodists Make When They Come to Town?

We are about to find out! As the 2017 Annual Conference gets closer, we are offering an opportunity to truly make a difference while we gather. Safe Harbor of Grand Traverse is an ecumenical ministry that provides a rotating shelter for those who are homeless in Traverse City. They are in the process of completing a permanent shelter site, which will open this fall. They will need to stock up on items like underwear, socks, etc.

We can help! We invite you, as a member of Annual Conference, to bring an offering of these items to leave for the shelter. Perhaps your church wishes to participate and you will want to bring a carload of items to donate! As we come together, let’s make a difference in the lives of those for whom Safe Harbor will be home. Thank you, in advance, for your generosity!
